Pala Tour Packages Kerala

The headquarters of Meenachil taluk, Pala Kerala is situated on the banks of the Meenachil River, close to the high ranges of the Western Ghats. An archetypal small town, where family includes neighbours and friends. Pala’s population is largely Christian, with Catholics forming a major chunk. Some of the region’s oldest churches are situated here and much of the social activity is church centered. Famous for its huge plantations, Pala’s prosperity comes largely from rubber, its main cash crop.

The name Pala is thought to have been derived from various sources. While some say, it is derived from Palathu Chethyar, the ancient settlers of the region, others connect the name to Hindu mythology and believe that the name took its birth from Palazhi, the mythological ocean of milk from which nectar was churned out. Pala Kerala is also name of a tree associated with Bhagavathi shrines. Yet others claim that the name originated from Paloor or Palayur, the place from where the earliest group of Christian settlers came to this region.
