Thiruvambady (Malayalam: തിരുവമ്പാടി) is a major hilly town and one of the suburb in the south - eastern side of Kozhikode district in Kerala. Thiruvambady was established on 1805 (British Rule). Thiruvampady is an Assembly constituency and also a Panchayath. Thiruvambady Panchayath was established on 1 January 1962 and Thiruvambady Assembly constituency was established on 1977. Thiruvambadi is located on the banks of Iruvanjippuzha which is a tributary of Chaliyar situated 35 km far from Kozhikode city. People migrated to here from 1938. This is a beautiful place filled with mountains, valleys and waterfalls. Famous waterfalls such as Thusharagiri Falls, Arippara Waterfalls, Urumi Hydro Electric Dam Set, Kozhippara Waterfalls are situated near to the town. Most people from here are engaged in agriculture and business activities. Hindus, Christians and Muslims co-exist in harmony adding to the diversity in faith and religion.


The early Thiruvambady village was a forest area in Kozhikode taluk from Neeleshwaram to Wayanad ghat. After death of Pazhassi Raja against British Army in 1805 this area belonged to East India Company. In this time the land of Zamorin in Kozhikode also belonged to East India Company. East India Company's Malabar area then after belonged to Madras Presidency and was ruled by British. British divide this whole land to small providences, districts and taluks for the ease of ruling. Like that Thiruvambady area came under Kozhikode Taluk. At that time the domain of land in people living area in Thiruvambady was given to Kottayam King Kalppakassery Karnoru and forest area's domain of land was given to Manniledathu Nair Tharavadu. From this squire (Janmikal) the tenants (Kudiyanmar) got agriculture permission in Thiruvambady. People of Thiruvambady cast their first votes to the Malabar district Board and voting rights were only for those who pay tax. The first man who started business in Thiruvambady was late Kuttiassan belonged to Cheruvadi. The second phase of the history of Thiruvambady begun in the year 1944,due to the immigration of people from Travancore area. Second world war and its aftermath severe poverty led them to immigrates them new pastures. Though there was a school named "Nandanassery school" opportunity only to study up to 4th standard was there. Teachers from distant places stayed in the houses of the landlord and taught. Their salary was a small amount of money and food . A little bit of help was there from the Madras Government there. The immigration of people from Travancore gave new life to Thiruvambady. The immigration of Christians to Thiruvambady started in the year 1942 and Sacred Heart Church was established in the year 1944. Sacred Heart Upper Primary School was started in the year 1947. In the year 1951 Sree Narayana Mission begun Lower Primary School. Another L.P. School was started in Pullurampara in 1955. It is to be noted that there begun a public library in the middle of 1950’s. Thus people of Thiruvambady remember in great respect the contributions rendered by the Christian Missioneries and Sree Narayana Mission forwards progress and development of Thiruvambady.

Thiruvambady Gramapanchayath has an area of 20739.44 acres including 9000 acres of forest . There were people living in the area since the beginning of 19th century . As per the record of revenue settlement, then population of Thiruvambady was 531(Hindus-482,Muslims-49). It is said to that Tippu Sultan used to travel through Thiruvambady during the fight of his army. Remnants of the destroyed temples are indication of this. Pazhassi Raja used to live in hiding in Thenpara in Anakkampoyil. Thiruvampady village includes Marakkattupuram and Cherupra area. Cherupra-Marakkattupuram areas are surveyed and the rest the land is unsurveyed. Thiruvambady was known as Nayarukolly. There were two stories about this name. One is that during the Mappila Rebellion,one Appukkuttan Nair was that dead by the army . Another is that this Appukkuttan Nair was killed by a wild elephant. Hence this place is known as Nayarukolly. Now this name is ceased to exit. It is believed that the name 'Thiruvambady' is associated with the Sree Krishna Temple. Though there were discrimination prevailed between various casts of the Hindu community, no such drifts were with Muslims. Both Hindus and Muslims lived in harmony and there was a lot of co-operation between them. As there were a few Muslims, they had to go to Omassery, Mukkam & Kodiyathur for there Religious get together. The first Mosque in Thiruvanbady arose in the year 1922, under the leadership of late Koyappathody Muhammed kutty. People like Kalpakassery Kutty krishnan Nair,K Kunnikkutty,Rarikkutty, Imbichithiyyan,Arampurath Koru,Palakkadan Koyamu,Imbichi Ahemmed,Thalathil Ummar were actively involved in the national liberation increment.
