Perinthalmanna is a town and municipality in Malappuram district of Kerala. Perinthalmanna's name is derived from Perumthallu (Malayalam: പെരുന്തല്ല്, the native name for fight). It was the capital of Valluvanad, a princely state ruled by the Valluvakonathiris, a suspected branch of the Pallava dynasty of the ancient Tamil kingdoms. The members of the royal families are divided among them and living in four kovilakams: Aripra, Ayiranazi, Kadannamanna and Mankada.

Perinthalmanna is the location where the East India Company established their first high school, first court, first Taluk office, and more after the Malabar treaty. Perinthalmanna has four hospitals, including a medical college, attracting patients from other parts of Kerala and from outside of India. Due to the abundance of medical centers in town, it is now called the Hospital Town of Kerala. The town became a municipality on 10 February 1990.

Origin of the name[edit]

Etymologically, Perintalmanna derives its name from the Malayalam words "perum" (Malayalam: പെരും, meaning "big") + "thallu" (തല്ല്, meaning "fight") + "mannu" (മണ്ണ്, meaning "land") to mean "land of big, rigorous fights". The original word "Perumthallumannu" was replaced by "Perintalmanna" over time. The traditions associated with this ancient town state that in the olden days, sporting events, including martial activities, were organized under the leadership of Kakooth Nair's, the commander-in-chief of the Valluvakkonathiris. These sporting events were organized before Angadipuram Thirumandhamkunnu Temple (see below) festival, which was celebrated after the harvesting of crops in the month of Makara, which corresponds to the months of January/February of the Gregorian calendar. Another main event of the festival was the Aattakalam or the stage for Kathakali performance. People from a cross-section of the society participated in these festivities, and everyone wanted to see the place where the Perinthallu or Perumthallu (that is, the rigorous fighting) took place. It was a place situated to the east of Angadipuram, and became known as Perinthallu, and got modified to its present form of Perintalmanna under British influence.

Capital of valluvanad[edit]

Perinthalmanna is the capital center of Valluvanad. Valluvanad was an erstwhile princely state in the present state of Kerala, that extended from the Nila River (Bharathapuzha River) in the South to the Panthaloor Mala in the North. On the west, it was bounded by the Arabian Sea at Ponnani and on the east by the Attapadi Hills (Silent Valley). The capital of erstwhile Valluvanad was at the present day town of Angadipuram, which is now famous for the Thirumandhamkunnu Temple. Valluvanad has a recorded history going back to the days of the Second Chera kingdom or Kulashekhara kingdom. At one point of time the Valluvokonathiri exercised sovereign powers over a considerable portion of South Malabar under the Chera (Kulasekhara) rulers and as an independent state after the Cheras. Subsequently, the Saamoothiri of Calicut became a major force on the western coast and he captured several lands from Valluvanad. Till then, Valluakonathiri was the strongest of the kings and he had the right of presiding over the "Maamaanka Festival" held once in 12 years at Thirunaavaaya. This right was arrogated by Samoothiri, when he captured the town in the latter half of the 13th century. Later, at the time of Mysore invasion, Valluakonathiri sought asylum in Travancore. On the cessation of Malabar to the British by Tipu Sultan, the capital was moved to Perinthalmanna. Valluvanad comprised the whole of the Perinthalmanna taluk, Mannarkkad and Ottapalam taluk and also parts of Ponnani taluk, Tirur taluk and Eranad taluks.The kovilakams or palaces of the members of the royal family were scattered in various places of Perinthalmanna such as Aripra, Ayiranazhi, Kadannamanna and Mankada. Poonthanam Illam, the ancestral home of the great 16th century poet Poonthanam, who wrote Njanapana, is at Perinthalmanna. The birthplace of E. M. S. Namboothirpad, the first chief minister of Kerala, who was also the chief minister of the first democratically elected communist cabinet in the world, is at Elamkulam, a hamlet near Perinthalmanna.


History[edit]

In the olden days, Valluvanad was an independent princely state. The ruler of Valluvanad was a witness during the offering of the title deed by King Veeraraghava. After the death of Cheraman Perumal, Kerala was divided among the rulers of Thiruvithamcoore, Kochi, Kolothunaadu, Kurumbanadu and Valluvanad states. The post of the ruler of Valluvanad was known as Valluvakkonathiri. The eldest member of Ayirazhi- Kadannamanna-aripra 'Kovilakam' became the Valluvakkonathiri. At first, the capital of Valluvanad was Kuruvaand, and later, Angadipuram became the capital. As it was the land ruled by the Valluvakkonathiri, it came to be known as Valluvanad. In the past, Perinthalmanna High School was known as Angadipuram Elementary School.


The British period[edit]

Background[edit]

From 1835 until the late 19th century, violent disturbances surfaced from time to time in different parts of the Malabar region, particularly in Eranad and Valluvanad, and the adjoining areas, which included Perintalmanna. These disturbances and uprisings were agrarian unrest. After these disturbances subsided, relative peace returned to an area approximately equivalent to the modern state of Kerala. Malabar came under the direct administrative control of the British raj, and was made a part of the Madras Presidency.

Mappila Rebellion[edit]

In 1921, the Mappila rebellion, also known as the Mopla riots, occurred. These incidents also affected Valluvanad. There were large-scale religious violence and riots in different parts of Valluvanad, followed by large-scale exodus of people from the affected areas. Those antisocial elements who were determined to fish in troubled waters, have largely contributed to give it a communal colour. Rumours were spread that large scale forcible conversions were taking place and those who resisted were massacred by the Mappila groups. The involvement of a large number of anti social elements in the violence and looting at Perinthalmanna made the then British Government to establish a police station and install imported communication equipment from France. It facilitated easy passage of messages to the superior officers. The available British records of 1921 incidents say that a large number of people from the surrounding places of Perinthalmanna were subjected to summary execution, for being defiant. An interesting part of the 1921 incidents is that there were very little Mappila families to receive the financial assistance and rations offered by the British government after the rebellion was crushed, as the Muslims themselves had reached the needy with their helping hand even before the government of the day had thought about it. This tendency of extending help to the needy with enthusiasm is a remarkable quality of the mappilas. An investigation carried out by Sir Logan, the Collector and District Magistrate of Wygram found that the report given by Sir Steinch, stating that the riots sprang from religious fanaticism, was wrong. Sir Logan was appointed as a special officer to investigate the matter and the truth behind the complaint that the landlords did not give land to construct mosques. The report submitted by Sir Logan stated that the Muslims considered it to be a religious right to take arms against the landlords who maltreated the tenants and the government which supported such landlords.[citation needed]

The looting of the government treasury by the rioters rocked Valluvanad. Rumours surrounding this looting instigated violence in Eranad and many other parts of Valluvanad, but most of the residents of Perintalmanna had, to a certain extent, refrained themselves from indulging in violence. The main reason for this was the social and cultural amity that existed in Perintalmanna for centuries.

Local self governance[edit]

Perintalmanna was at first under Malappuram Taluk board, and then under the Valluvanad Taluk board. This place became a Panchayat in 1933, and the Panchayat office was situated in the building where the lower primary school functioned. The first Panchayat president was P. Achuthan Menon. According to the local bodies Act, the Panchayat president was selected by organizing a public meeting and raising of hands to show support for a member. All the executive powers were vested on the Panchayat president.


Geo - Statitics[edit]

Perintalmanna became a Panchayath in 1933. Later upgraded into a municipality on 10 February 1990. As of 2011 India census,Perinthalmanna Municipal Region had a population of 49,723 spreading an area of 34 Sq.Km. The municipal area is divided into 31 administration wards. Perintalmanna Taluk spread across a vast area with population of about 6.1 lakh.

Elamkulam Manakkal Sankaran Namboodiripad was born on 13 June 1909, as the son of Parameswaran Namboodirippad, at Elamkulam, in Perintalmanna taluk of the present Malappuram district into an aristocratic upper-caste Brahmin family.

Elamkulam Manakkal Sankaran Namboodiripad (13 June 1909 – 19 March 1998), popularly EMS, was an Indian communist politician and theorist, who served as the first Chief Minister of Kerala state in 1957–59 and then again in 1967–69. As a member of the Communist Party of India (CPI), he became the first non-Indian National Congress chief minister in the Indian republic.

Some of those who had enough education were fortunate enough to land highly paid jobs abroad. The investment of such NRI money in various forms of business resulted in employing the local population here and thus contributing largely to the alleviation of unemployment.
