Ottapalam is a small town in Palakkad District in Malabar region, Kerala, India.

Killikkurissi Temple


Ottapalam is the location of most Malayalam films because of the beauty of the paddy fields, coconut plantations and banana plantations here. All these ingredients are available everywhere in Kerala, but in Ottapalam, you will get an expanse of greenery undisturbed by eyesores of modern civilization like electric cables, vehicles or buildings. The town is populated by only 53,000 people which is much below Kerala average.
