Palakkad, also known as Palghat, is a quaint town of Palakkad in central Kerala that boasts picturesque landscapes, tranquil scenery, and clear backwaters. Palakkad is the gateway to Kerala due to the presence of the Palakkad Gap in the Western Ghats. This is the area that links Kerala to Tamil Nadu and perhaps does so in a cultural sense too.
Palakkad is the land of Palmyras and Paddy Fields and is famous as the chief granary of Kerala.
Palakkad derived its name from pala trees which were once quite abundant in the region. It is also famous for the ruins of Tipu Sulthan's Fort. Some of the best attractions in Palakkad are Palakkad Fort, Silent Valley National Park, Pothundy Dam, Jain Temple, Dhoni waterfalls, and Walayar Dam.
