Culture and people
The first church in Kodanchery was started at Ambalakunnu near Kannoth. As the population increased, it was moved to Ambattupadi for convenience, and later to the town where the Kodanchery LP School is situated.
Thusharagiri Falls are a tourist destination in the Malabar region, with five water falls right in the middle of the forest. Two streams originating from the Western Ghats meet here to form the Chalippuzha River. The river diverges into three waterfalls creating a snowy spray, which gives the name, 'Thusharagiri' ("snow capped mountains"). The highest waterfall is the Thenpara (honey hill) that falls from an altitude of 75 metres.
