Palakkad is the gateway to Kerala from the North, a 40 kilometre break in the mountains due to the presence of the Palakkad Gap which gives access to this land situated at the foot of the Western Ghats. Celebrated as the granary of Kerala, the city derives its name from the Malayalam words Pala (Alsteria scholaris) and Kadu (forest). This place was once a beautiful stretch of forest covered with the sweet-scented flowers of the Pala tree. A potpourri of Tamil and Kerala culture, some of the finest Carnatic musicians hail from this region which continues to be largely agrarian society. Palakkad is a vast expanse of verdant plains interspersed with hills, rivers, mountain streams and forests. The town is famous for some of the best Ayurvedic treatment centers.
