Porkulam is a village in Thrissur district in the state of Kerala, India. Dr. B.K. Tapper found old "nannangadies" in a temple compound at Porkulam. In the nannangadies he found human remains, decorated pearls, iron tools and earthen pots which were very similar to those found at Thakshasila, a site which dates back more than 2400 years.
