A picturesque town sprinkled with small hills, lush greens and gushing fresh water streams, Malappuram was once the headquarters of the British troops. The main attraction of this region is the famous Kadalundipuzha River which flows around the
city. The hill town is quite famous as religiously harmonious town featuring centers for Hindu and Islamic learning. The city is divided into two parts- Uphill and Downhill. While Uphill houses government offices and commercial establishments, the Downhill has the main market of the region. Some popular places to visit in Malappuram are Juma Masjid, Shanthitheeram and Kottakkunnu.
