General Information

Kattakada is a town in the eastern part of Thiruvanathapram District. It is a commercial Centre of hill products in the district. Kattakada is situated at the Centre of four important places in four directions; Thiruvanathapram to the west, Neyyattinkara to the south, Neyyar Dam to the east and Nedumangad to the north. The origin of the name “Kattakkada” says that the word “kada” means the bottom of the tree. The village elders used to meet under the banyan tree. Thus, the place began to be called ‘Kattalkada’, meaning the market of wild banyan tree. This name gradually got itself abridged and became “Kattakada”.

Kattakada is the entry point to the mountain ranges (Western Ghats) and the nerve Centre of the eastern parts of the district. Also, it is a growing educational Centre in the Thiruvananthapuram district, which fast emerges as the educational hub of the district. The present day Kattakada town lies in two village panchayths; Kattakada and Poovachal. Many important institutions like the Primary Health Centre, the public market, the post office; Christian College, etc. are situated in Poovachal Panchayath.
