MALAPPURAM

Malappuram district lies in northern Kerala, and is bounded by The Nilgiris of Tamil Nadu in the east, Arabian sea in the west, Kozhikode and Wayanad districts in the north and Palakkad and Thrissur districts in the South. The district has a geographical area of 3550 Sq.Kms. The district headquarters is at Malappuram.
The Nilgiris hills on the East and the Arabian Sea on the west, the district of Malappuram is literally the land atop the hills, is remarkable for its unique natural beauty.Like most of the other districts of the state, Malappuram too consists of three natural divisions, lowland, midland and highland. The low land stretches along the seacoast, the midland in the center and the highland region towards the east and north eastern parts. The topography of the district is highly undulating; starting from the hilltops covered with thick forests on the east along the Nilgiris. It gradually slopes down to the valleys and the small hills, before finally ending on the sandy flat of luxuriant coconut groves in the west.
Home to the khilafath movement and the mappila revolts, which questioned the British authority in India, Malappuram was the military headquarters of the Zamorins of Kozhikode since ancient times.
This place still has the ruins of an ancient fort built by Tipu Sultan. Malappuram was the headquarters of European and British troops and later it became the headquarters of the Malabar Special Police.
The district has more or less the same climatic conditions prevalent else-where the state, viz, dry season from December to February, hot season from March to May, the South West Monsoon from October to November. The South West Monsoon is usually very heavy and nearly 75 per cent of the annual rains are received during this season. The climate is generally hot and humid; the range of temperature varying between 300C and 200C. The Average annual rainfall is 290mm.
Four important rivers of Kerala flow through Malappuram district. They are, Chaliyar, Kadalundippuzha, Bharathappuzha and Tirurpuzha.
