History[edit]

Up to AD 1762 Chalakudy and surrounding areas were part of Kodassery nadu. In 1762AD Cochin Maharajah formed Kodassery taluk by adding some other desoms from nearby nadus. In 1860 AD this taluk was abolished and parts were amalgamated into Mukundapuram and Kanayannur taluks. In December 2013 new Chalakudy taluk was formed by bifurcating Mukundapuram Taluk.
