The village was originally named Farookhabad by Tippu Sultan. Later, this was changed to Feroke by the British. Tipu Sulthan wanted to make Feroke as his capital in Malabar. [3] The remains of a fort built by Tipu Sultan still stands in Feroke with a long tunnel to the river. Authorities are trying to preserve the fort remains as a site of historical importance. [4] The old bridge at Feroke was built by the British in 1883.


Feroke, on the southern bank of Chaliyar river, was adjacent to the kingdom of Parappanad during medieval period. [5] The rulers of Parappanad were vassals to the Zamorin of Calicut. [6] The headquarters of Parappanad Royal family was the coastal town of Parappanangadi in present-day Malappuram district. [7] In 15th century CE, Parappanad Swaroopam was divided into two - Northern Parappanad (Beypore Swaroopam) and Southern Parappanad (Parappur Swaroopam). [6] Beypore, Cheruvannur, and Panniyankara, on northern bank of Chaliyar, became Northern Parappanad. [5] Kadalundi, Vallikkunnu, and Parappanangadi, on the southern bank of Chaliyar became Southern Parappanad. [5]

It is also known the ruler of the Kingdom of Tanur (Vettathunadu Swaroopam), had assisted the Portuguese to build a fort at the island of Chaliyam, which was a part of Southern Parappanad, and was destructed during the Battle at Chaliyam fort occurred in 1571. [6] Feroke became a part of the Kingdom of Mysore in late 18th century CE. [6] Following the Third Anglo-Mysore War and the subsequent Treaty of Seringapatam, Feroke became a part of Malabar District under British Raj. [6] Feroke was included in Eranad Taluk in the Malappuram Revenue Division of Malabar District with its Taluk headquarters at Manjeri. [8] [5] [9] Following the formation of the state of Kerala in 1956, Feroke became a part of Tirurangadi Revenue block of Tirur Taluk. [7] [10] On 16 June 1969, Eranad Taluk, Tirur Taluk, Tirurangadi, and Parappanangadi, were transferred to newly formed Malappuram district. [10] However, three Revenue Villages of Tirur Taluk, namely, Feroke, Ramanattukara, and Kadalundi, remained in Kozhikode district, as they were much closer to Kozhikode city centre. [10] However Kadalundi Nagaram beach (where Kadalundi River flows into Arabian Sea, a part of Vallikkunnu Grama Panchayat), Tenhipalam, the centre of University of Calicut, and Karippur, the site of Calicut International Airport, became parts of Malappuram. [10]

Feroke, Ramanattukara, and Kadalundi are parts of Kozhikode Taluk and Kozhikode metropolitan area. [11] [12]
