In 1861 the Church Mission Society sent Rev. John Backus to Pallai to establish a Christian community in the town. This led to the construction and dedication of St. Andrew's Church on 30 November 1895.
Pallai is located on the (A9) Kandy-Jaffna Highway.
It is served by a railway station on the national network which was out of use due to war damage. In 2009, agreements were made to restore the line back into service. The railway resumed operation on 4 March 2014.
