      Welcome to Thalassery, the historical Capital of North Kerala. In ancient days Thalassery must have been an important village among surrounding villages. 'Tellicherry' is the Anglican form of 'Thalassery'. 'Thala' means head in Malayalam, 'Cheri' is “a village” in Tamil. There was a time when Tamil and Malayalam were one language. That was long long ago. So Thalassery existed as an important village centuries ago. No one has recorded the ancient history of Thalassery. But certain aspects of the life of the people of the place Thalassery, and the entire Malabar Coast, still remain. They have developed certain characteristics in human beings. This is the most unlike villages of other states of India, where the entire village lives in houses close to each other, and their farms and fields are far away. The nearest to our way of living could be found in Kashmir.
