Kottakkunnu-Beauty spot of Malappuram

KOTTAKKUNNU ('the mount with the fort') is the highest point in Malappuram town, the headquarters of the district with that name. Actually, there is no fort there. It was the campsite of British military when it reached there in 1921 in large numbers to quell an uprising of Muslim peasants.

This is one of the Recently developed tourist Areas in Malappuram District. Kottakkunnu is situated at the heart of the Malappuram Town, which is on top of a hill. Located near the district collectorate in Malappuram, one can see traces of an old fort at the crest of the Cantonment Hill. The fort was the first to be built by the Zamorins of Kozhikode. Nearby are the Vettakkorumakan Temple and the Siva Temple with the famous murals of Malabar.

More over all those things, the beautiful sunset that can be seen from the top of this hill gives more beauty to Kottakkunnu Hill. Common people consider this as a small Kanyakumari, that help them to plan a small honeymoon trip.

Nearby one can see an amusement park with wonderful rides, and a water theme park. The beautiful scenery adds more beauty to Kottakkunnu, and thus to Malappuram.
