    Malappuram district came into existence in the year 1969, by carving out some of the Panchayats from the Taluks belonging to Palakkad and Kozhikkode districts. (See the district map from: http://www.mapsofindia.com/maps/kerala/districts/malappuram.htm).

    Earlier, prior to the formation of Kerala State in the year 1956, these districts were within the Malabar district of erstwhile Madras State.

    The area of Malappuram district is 3548 sq. km, and it has a population of 36,25,471 as per 2001 census. The population growth rate is more in this district compared to other districts in Kerala. Kerala's growth rate is only 9.42%, whereas that of Malappuram district is 17.22% during the ten years between the last two census. This is the only district in Kerala where the Muslims outnumber Hindus. Work participation is 24.12% which is lowest among districts, and Thenmala Panchayat of this district giving the lowest rate, 16.56%.(In this Panchayat the female work participation is also the lowest, 1,73%). If the Municipalities are considered then also Tirur Municipality of Malappuram district has the lowest work participation rate, 22.31%. Again, female work participation is lowest in Ponnani, another municipality of this district. Population growth rate is more in this district compared to other districts.

    As boundaries it has the Taluks, Kozhikkode, South Wynad and Gudallur and Ootakmand of Tamil Nadu on the north, Ottapalam Taluk of Palakkad district on the East, Chavakkad Taluk of Trichur district on the South and the Arabian Sea on the west.

Four major rivers, Kadalundi puzha, Chaliar puzha, Tirur puzha and Bharatha puzha, flow through this district. Several other streams and canals are also there.
    Nilambur is well known for its rich forest, and teak plantation. Even during the British rule, this forest used to cater to the needs of strong woods for all constructions and furniture making. This was the reason for connecting the railway line to Nilambur from Shoranur junction.
