Muthuthala (Malayalam മുതുതല) is a village and gram panchayat.[1] It lies northwest of Pattambi in Palakkad district, of the state of Kerala, India. It is located on the banks of the Bharathapuzha River. The adjacent villages to Muthuthala are Pallippuram, Koppam and Pattambi.


As of 2001 India census, Muthuthala had a population of 21,496 with 10,297 males and 11,199 females.[2]

Local History[edit]



There had been a trade link passing through the River Bharathapuzha. Varantakuttikkatavu was a ferry point which was connecting Thrithala, the then local market place and Kodumunda.


The village, located 8 km from Pattambi on the Pattambi-Pallippuram Road, and can be reached by road and rail. The road from Pattambi forks in two directions at the Muthuthala junction. One road goes to Pallippuram and the other one reaches the state highway to Perinthalmanna at Trithala Koppam junction. A diversion from the nearby town Parakkad also connects to the Perinthalmanna Shoranur state highway at Sankaramangalam.


Kodumunda is the only railway station in Muthuthala, which is en route to Kozhikode on the Shoranur–Kozhikode railway line. Only a few passenger trains halt at this station, so the preferable means to reach Muthuthala is by road. Pattambi is the main railway station nearby where most of the trains do have a stopping.
