Kalpathi Heritage Street

Kalpathi Street in Palakkad district welcomes you to a heritage lane with look-alike houses that creates an old-world charm. You will be surrounded by edifices in the traditional style of architecture. 

Situated on the banks of Kalpathi River, this street is occupied by the Brahmin community, who fled from Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu during the 1790s fearing attack by Tipu Sultan. The Brahmins set up an agraharam (Brahmin Street) which is, today, a combination of four agraharams including Chathapuram, Govindarajapuram, Old Kalpathy and New Kalpathy.

The place is famed for the festival Kalpathi Ratholsavam. The annual Ratholsavam or chariot festival at Sree Viswanatha Swamy Temple is one of the most stunning celebrations of Kerala.
