Palakkad is the gateway to Kerala from Tamil Nadu through a 40 kilometer break in the Western Ghats. The Palakkad Gap, as it is called, once facilitated trade between the east and west coasts of Peninsular India. Palakkad derives its name from the sweet-scented flower of the ‘pala’ tree and from ‘kaadu’, meaning ‘forest.’ Palakkad is a lush district of fertile plains, hills, rivers, mountain streams, and forests. This ‘Granary of Kerala’, is also known as ‘The Land of the Palmyra,’ due to the abundance of its trees with rich cultural associations. A mix of Tamil and Kerala culture, some of the finest Carnatic musicians hail from this largely agrarian region. Despite its agrarian culture, there are plenty of Palakkad hotels for prospective visitors.
