Etymology

The name Anthoor means "large village." Due to its large size, the town was split into two villages, Anthoor and Morazha. The hill of Anthoor has been mentioned in many Theyyam folk songs and Thottam Pattu (തോറ്റം പാട്ട്). [11]

History

Anthoor was previously under Kolathiri rule. Later, Tipu Sultan adjoined this area as part of the Kingdom of Mysore. During British Raj, the kingdom was under Chirakkal Taluk of Malabar District in the Madras Presidency. After the formation of the Kerala State, this area was made a panchayat in the Cannanore District. Later, the Anthoor Panchayat was merged with the Taliparambu Municipality upon the latter's formation. Presently, Anthoor is an independent municipality of Kannur District of Kerala State.
