The region is administered by the Mangalam Grama Panchayat. It is composed of 20 wards.[5] The Panchayat is bounded by Vettom and Thalakkad to the north, Triprangode to the east, Purathur to the south and Arabian Sea to the west.[1] Kunjutty of IUML is the president of mangalam Panchayat.[5] Mangalam comes under Thavanur (State Assembly constituency), which comes under the Ponnani (Lok Sabha constituency).Mangalam was a part of the Vettathunad in the medieval period, like most of the other villages in the Tirur Taluk.[6] Vettathunad, also known as the Kingdom of Tanur, was a coastal city-state kingdom in the Malabar Coast. It was ruled by the Vettathu Raja, who was a dependent of the Zamorin of Calicut. Vettathunad was known for its trade relationship with the Arab merchants in the medieval period. The Kshatriya family of the Vettathu Rajas became extinct with the death of the last Raja on 24 May 1793. [6] It was a part of the Malabar District during the British rule. Vallathol Narayana Menon, a renowned Malayalam poet, was born at Mangalam. The family of Mohammed Abdur Rahiman also traces back to here. Mangalam Grama Panchayat, the local administrative body of the region, was formed on 30 September 2000 by bifurcating the Vettom Grama Panchayath.[1]
