Developing as a suburb of Kozhikode city, Ramanattukara is a part of the master plan for Kozhikode urban area.[1][2]


Ramanattukara, on the southern bank of Chaliyar river, was adjacent to the kingdom of Parappanad during medieval period.[3] Parappanad royal family is a cousin dynasty of the Travancore royal family. The rulers of Parappanad were vassals to the Zamorin of Calicut.[4] The headquarters of Parappanad Royal family was the coastal town of Parappanangadi in present-day Malappuram district.[5] In 15th century CE, Parappanad Swaroopam was divided into two - Northern Parappanad (Beypore Swaroopam) and Southern Parappanad (Parappur Swaroopam).[4] Beypore, Cheruvannur, and Panniyankara, on northern bank of Chaliyar, became Northern Parappanad.[3] Kadalundi, Vallikkunnu, and Parappanangadi, on the southern bank of Chaliyar became Southern Parappanad.[3]

It is also known the ruler of the Kingdom of Tanur (Vettathunadu Swaroopam), had assisted the Portuguese to build a fort at the island of Chaliyam, which was a part of Southern Parappanad, and was destructed during the Battle at Chaliyam fort occurred in 1571.[4] Feroke became a part of the Kingdom of Mysore in late 18th century CE.[4] Following the Third Anglo-Mysore War and the subsequent Treaty of Seringapatam, Ramanattukara became a part of Malabar District under British Raj.[4] Ramanattukara was included in Eranad Taluk in the Malappuram Revenue Division of Malabar District with its Taluk headquarters at Manjeri.[6][3][7] Following the formation of the state of Kerala in 1956, Ramanattukara became a part of Tirurangadi Revenue block of Tirur Taluk.[5][8] On 16 June 1969, Eranad Taluk, Tirur Taluk, Tirurangadi, and Parappanangadi, were transferred to newly formed Malappuram district.[8] However, three Revenue Villages of Tirur Taluk, namely, Feroke, Ramanattukara, and Kadalundi, remained in Kozhikode district, as they were much closer to Kozhikode city centre.[8] However Kadalundi Nagaram beach (where Kadalundi River flows into Arabian Sea, a part of Vallikkunnu Grama Panchayat), Tenhipalam, the centre of University of Calicut and Karippur, the site of Calicut International Airport, became parts of Malappuram.[8] Feroke, Ramanattukara, and Kadalundi are parts of Kozhikode Taluk and Kozhikode metropolitan area.[9][10]
