About Municipality

Kalakadu Municipality situated in Tirunelveli District.

As per Government Order No. 67, Department of Municipal Administration and Water Supply dated 11.09.2021, Kalakadu  Town Panchayat upgraded to Municipality.

In History of Travancore from the Earliest Times, P. A. Sankunny Menon mentions Kalacaud instead of Kalakkad. A few battles between the Travancore Kings and the British at this place are recorded. Joannes de Lannoy, the only son of Eustachius De Lannoy, was killed in battle of Kalakkad on 14 September 1765 at the age of twenty.

Kalakkad was a scene of frequent struggles in the late 1750s during the Polygar revolt led by the Puli Thevar and changed hands several times.

The village was the capital of Pandya kings briefly. A rest house constructed by the British is still there at Sengaltheri in the nearby mountains.

Even today people refer to Kottai(கோட்டை), the equivalent of a fort, in this area, though no traces of it are found today.
