[ edit ] Roman Coins of Iyyal The archeologists unearthed a collection of old Roman coins which was buried around BC 123and AD 117. These coins are exhibited at Archeological Museum of Thrissur. Reference: "Keralathile Sthalanama Charithram" of Sri. V.V.Valath and Makothai pattanam written by Sri. V.T. Induchudan in Mathrubhumi Annual 1970
[ edit ] Chowannur Here there are places of historical importance. There are some caves which were the abode of the Muni or Yogi. Their household utensils are still visible there. One such cave is Chowannur Guha. This is a Panchayat and has eight schools, two technical (vocational higher secondary school) schools and an art school for learning drawing and painting. Of these schools two are high schools for girls, two upper primary schools and five primary schools. All these schools come under private management. St.Mary's Upper Primary School that was started by the Sisters of Charity in 1964 was up-graded as high school in 1982. The primary school, which was started by the foreign missionaries in 1881 is now under the management of Mar Thoma Christian Community. A.L.P.S.Payoor, started in 1888 and St.Mary Magdaline School at Adupputy, started in 1976 are now managed by the Sisters at Adupputy. The only technical school, Good Shepherd ITC at Kunnamkulam, is under the management of the CMI Congregation. Apart from these formal educational institutions there runs numerous parallel education centres, type-writing institutes, tailoring centres, day-care centres, etc… [ edit ] Tourism: Chowannur Guha on the Kunnamkulam - Wadkancherry road is a stopover frequented by tourists. The paddy fields of Chowannur are a spectacle of motorbike races every year and is a real spectacle to watch. These village sports are sponsored by local companies and the prize money and the entire event is frequented by local youth in large numbers. Narimada Kunna is a popular hill near at chowannur and is frequented by newly married couples. It has been a shooting site for a popular movie. Kalleyi and Panthallur Poorams are majestic attractions and are temple festivals similar in lines of Trichur pooram. Both happen in the month of January and February and are frequented by foreign tourists. The anecdote of the place and event is that these tourists never miss the date and time of the pooram and are present each year, without fail. (Indian calendar days vary and are not in sync with the English - Gregorian Calendar) Korattikkara(nearly 7km from kunnamkulam towards calicut direction) kodamara-kunnu ( between korattikkara and chalissery)it is frequented among locals for watching the beautiful sunset and for relaxation.
