Kodungallur, is a municipality in the South Western border of Thrissur district of Kerala, India. Kodungallur is northwest of Kochi and southwest of Thrissur, by National Highway 66 .It is postulated that the city was devastated by natural calamities—a flood or an earth quake—in 1341, and consequently lost its commercial importance thereafter. Further, it came under military attacks on various occasions: in 1504 by the Portuguese-Kochi allied forces during their movement against Calicut in 1524, by the Mappilas during their attack against the Portuguese, and in 1565 again by the Portuguese.EtymologyThe name Kodungallur is derived from Kodi-linga-puram according to common belief. Kodungallur was perhaps the revenue collection center of Kuda-kons for the goods coming to the nearby port, hence the name Kudakonallur, which later shortened to Kodungallur.Historically, Kodungallur has been identified as Mahodaya Puram, Mahavanchimana Pattanam, Thrikulasekarapuram, Jangli, Gingaleh, Cyngilin, Shinkali, Chinkli, Jinkali, Shenkala, and Cynkali, which are all derived from the name of the River Changala, a tributary of Periyar. Columguria, Kotilingapuram, Kudalingapuram, Kodunkaliyur, Thiruvallur, Ravivisvapuram and Balakreetapuram are a few other names, identified as Kodungallur in various related records or literary works.
