English: Palakkad (Malayalam:പാലക്കാട് ജില്ല), Tamil:பாலக்காடு மாவட்டம்) or Palghat is one of the 14 districts of Kerala state in South India. The city of Palakkad is the district headquarters. Palakkad is bordered on the northwest by the Malappuram district, on the southwest by the Thrissur district and on the east by Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu. The district is nicknamed "the granary of Kerala". In earlier times Palakkad was also known as Palakkattussery. Some etymologists trace the word "Palakkad" from the word Palai nilam, which means "dry lands". The commonly held belief, however, is that the name is a fusion of two Malayalam words, Pala, a tree (Alstonia scholaris) that is found abundantly in Palakkad, and Kadu, which means "forest".
