About Village

The place-name KANNAMBRA is said to be derived from ‘Kannan Para’(Rock Kannan). The main occupation people of the area was agriculture based on the feudal system or the Janmi system. The prominent Janmi family (feudal lord-Landowner) was the ‘Kannambra’ who belonged to the Nair community. The feudalism, the Janmi, their tenants, and their joint efforts, was the decisive economical factor of the land. Later, with the implementation of the land reforms Act in Kerala Janmi system came to an end and the peasants and the leaseholders of the land become landowners. With the formation of the Kerala state on a linguistic base, the southern part of the Kannambra Village witnessed. Large scale migration of farmers from the erstwhile Travancore (Thiruvithamcore) and began rubber and pineapple plantations in the area. Kannambra Co-Operative Bank is the first of its kind in Kerala.
