ABOUT VALANCHERY

History

In the 12th century, the area now known as Valanchery belonged to the Valluvanad Rajavamsam and the region is thought to have been home to an ancient family of kings. The hierarchy of this Rajavamsam was known as Arangot Swaroopam, and theRajavamsam is mentioned in Unnuneeli Sandesam and Unni yadi Charitham. The boundary of this Rajavamsam stretched from Bharathapuzha in the south to Panthalur mala in the north and Attapadi Mala (Silent Valley) in the East to the seacoast in Ponnaniin the west.

Around 1353–1361 AD this place came under kingdom of Samoothiri (Zamorin) of Kozhikode. Samoothiri Raja fought a series of small battles with smaller states called the Thirunavaya War. Until then Valluvakonathiri was the strongest of the kings and had the right of presiding over the Mamankam Festival held once every 12 years at Thirunavaya. This right was usurped by Samoothiri when he captured the town in the latter half of the 13th century. As Thirunavaya was captured, Samoothiri proclaimed himself as the Rakshāpurusha ("protector", effectively the Emperor) and took over sole right of conducting the Mamankam, a mock war festival. The next Mamankam at Thirunavaya was conducted under the auspices of Saamoothiri with great pomp and splendor.
Later with the help of Ali Raja, in 1763, Mysore king Hyder Ali overran smaller principalities in North Malabar and set up a confrontation with the Samoothiri (Maharajah of Calicut). After receiving the support of the Kombi Achan, the Mysoreforces marched towards Calicut, where the Saamoothiri's palace was located. In 1767 the area was part of the kingdom of Hyder Ali and this continued until his son Tipu Sultan's death. Tipu Sultan was killed in Fourth Anglo-Mysore War against British East India Company in 1799. Under British rule, the area fell under Madras Presidency, which continued until India's independence.
