  • Malappuram (/mələppurəm/) is one of the 14 districts in the Indian state of Kerala, with a coastline of 70 km (43 mi). It is the most populous district of Kerala, which is home to around 13% of the total population of the state. The district was formed on 16 June 1969, spanning an area of about 3,554 km2 (1,372 sq mi). It is the third-largest district of Kerala by area, as well as the largest district in the state bounded by Western Ghats and Arabian Sea to the two sides. Malappuram is the third major contributing district to the Gross State Domestic Product of Kerala as of 2019, after Ernakulam and Thiruvananthapuram. The district is divided into seven Taluks - Eranad, Kondotty, Nilambur, Perinthalmanna, Ponnani, Tirur, and Tirurangadi. Economically booming towns in Malappuram district include Malappuram, Manjeri, Tirur, Ponnani, Perinthalmanna, Kottakkal, Nilambur, Parappanangadi, Tanur, Kondotty, Valanchery, Tirurangadi, Chemmad, Edappal, Wandoor, Areekode, Edakkara, Chungathara, Kalikavu, and Puthanathani. Having 12 municipalities in total, the district has the second-highest number of Municipal towns in the state lying just behind Ernakulam (13). Three of Kerala's six longest rivers, namely Chaliyar, Kadalundi River, and Bharathappuzha (River Ponnani), and their tributaries, flow through the district. The high ranges on the eastern border of district forms a continuation of the Nilgiri Mountain Ranges of Western Ghats, which is also shared by the neighbouring Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu. A portion of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve lies in Nilambur Taluk of Malappuram district. The 2,554 m high Mukurthi peak, which is situated in the border of Nilambur Taluk and Ooty Taluk, and is also the fifth-highest peak in South India as well as the third-highest in Kerala after Anamudi (2,696 m) and Meesapulimala (2,651 m), is the highest point of elevation in Malappuram district. It is also the highest peak in Kerala outside the Idukki district. The 2,383 high Anginda peak, which is located closer to Malappuram-Palakkad-Nilgiris district border is the second-highest peak. Vavul Mala, a 2,339 m high peak situated on the trijunction of Nilambur Taluk of Malappuram, Wayanad, and Thamarassery Taluk of Kozhikode districts, is the third-highest point of elevation in the district. The midland area of the district is also characterised by several undulating smaller hills, which gently slope towards west. The coastal Taluks contain coconut-fringed sandy beaches, Mangroves, estuaries, backwaters, Kole Wetlands, and canals. As of 2003, Malappuram has the least suicide rate among the districts of Kerala (13.3), which is much lesser than the state average (32.8). Malayalam is the most spoken language. The district has witnessed significant emigration, especially to the Arab states of the Persian Gulf during the Gulf Boom of the 1970s and early 1980s, and its economy depends significantly on remittances from a large Malayali expatriate community. Malappuram was the first e-literate as well as the first cyber literate district of India. Malappuram metropolitan area is the fourth largest urban agglomeration in Kerala after Kochi, Calicut, and Thrissur urban areas and the 25th largest in India with a total population of 1.7 million. 44.2% of the district's population reside in the urban areas according to the 2011 census of India. Being home to 4 important universities in the state which includes the University of Calicut, Malappuram is an important hub of higher education in Kerala. Notable people from the district include Azhvanchery Thamprakkal (the titular head of all Nambudiris in Kerala), Thunchaththu Ezhuthachan (The father of modern Malayalam literature), E. M. S. Namboodiripad (The first Chief Minister of Kerala), Melpathur Narayana Bhattathiri (an eminent 16th century Sanskrit poet), Zainuddin Makhdoom II (the first historian of Kerala), Moyinkutty Vaidyar (the most renowned Mappila Paattu poet), Vallathol Narayana Menon (the founder of Kerala Kalamandalam), Uroob (one of the prominent novelists of Malayalam), Vaidyaratnam P.

G. S. Narayanan (historian), Gopinath Muthukad (motivational speaker), and many of the members of medieval Kerala School of Astronomy and Mathematics, and numerous prominent writers of Malayalam literature. The port towns of Ponnani, Tanur (Vettathunad), and Parappanangadi (Parappanad), were three among the major ports in the Malabar Coast during the medieval period. During the early medieval period, the district was home to two of the four major kingdoms that ruled Kerala. Perumpadappu was the hometown of the Kingdom of Cochin, which is also known as Perumbadappu Swaroopam, and Nediyiruppu was the hometown of the Zamorin of Calicut, which is also known as Nediyiruppu Swaroopam. Besides, the original headquarters of the Palakkad Rajas were also at Athavanad in the district. The district was also home to the historic Kingdom of Tanur, Parappanad, and Valluvanad. During the colonial era, Malappuram became the headquarters of European and British troops and it later became the headquarters of the Malabar Special Police (M.S.P) formerly known as Malappuram Special Force formed in 1885, which is also the oldest armed police battalion in the state. The modern Malayalam literature as well as the Arabi Malayalam script took their shape on the bank of Bharathappuzha river, Kadalundi River, and Tirur River, mainly in the Taluks of Tirur and Ponnani. The oldest Teak plantation of world at Conolly's plot is situated at Chaliyar valley in Nilambur.
