INFORMATION ABOUT THALASSERY
Thalassery, also known as Tellicherry, is a city on the Malabar Coast of Kerala, in South India. It is 21 km from the district headquarters, Kannur. The name Tellicherry is the anglicized form of Thalassery. Thalassery municipality has a population just less than 100,000. Thalassery municipality is part of the urban agglomeration of Kannur.
The Chera dynasty that ruled Kerala from the ninth century declined by the beginning of the 12th century. The kingdom then broke into smaller regions under local chieftains. This led to the formation of provincial entities such as Venadu, Kolathunadu, Kochi and Kozhikode. Thalassery was the northernmost place in Kolathunadu, and was called "Thalakkathe" (which means "northernmost" or "topmost" in the Malayalam language) + "cheri" (which means "place"), which was later abbreviated to Thalassery.
