English: Wayanad district (Malayalam: വയനാട്, Vayanāṭ), in the north-east of Kerala, India, was formed on November 1, 1980, as the 12th district by carving out areas from Kozhikode and Kannur districts, comprising the taluks Mananthavady, Sultan Bathery and Vythiri. Kalpetta is the district headquarters as well as the only municipal town in the district. The region was known as Mayakshetra (Maya's land) in the earliest records. The town of Wayanad was known as Bayalnad before the 12th-century throughout the eras of Kadambas, Hoysalas, Gangas and Wodeyars. This region was home to ancient Jain and Hindu communities. With the conquest of Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan, Wayanad became a garrison and several temples were emptied out to store ammunition and weapons. After the British colonial rule extended to what is now Wayanad district, one town was renamed Sultan Bathery. Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary is an animal sanctuary in Wayanad. The sanctuary is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. The Western Ghats, Nilgiri Sub-Cluster (6,000+ km²), including all of the sanctuary, is under consideration by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee for selection as a World Heritage Site.
