Widely heralded as the Rice Granary of Kerala, Palakkad is the treasure trove of astounding sights and the Gateway to Kerala from North. The place is a melting-pot of culture, history, art, literature, folklore and ethnic denominations, because of the invasions from the bordering kingdoms in the past.
Palakkad or Palghat, is a city in Kerala, a state in southwestern India. The 18th-century Palakkad Fort has sturdy battlements, a moat, and a Hanuman temple on its grounds. North, in the Kalpathy River, the 15th-century Viswanatha Swamy Temple is the main venue of the famous Ratholsavam chariot festival.
