ARTICLE 1 - Kallooppara, the land with a redundant whilom history

Kallooppara, the land with the most divine touch of tranquility and peace, yet flaunting its most envious beauty through the majestic beauty of the tall, swaying coconut groves in the light and the soul-relishing breeze is a sight that can make anyone think of 'Kingdom Come'. This land which is bestowed with these divine gifts is set most appropriately at the central part of the turquoise blue waters of the river Manimala, by length, that originates from the Peruvanthanam hillocks, which in its due course joins with the well-known river Pampa at Keecherivalil of pulikeezhu in Thiruvalla taluk.(The river Manimala is evidently known as 'Vishaghna' in a few of the ancient Sanskrit Literature).

The land of Kallooppara was previously known by the name of Perumbranadu, which was so called due to its massive storage of rocks and hence being known by the name of  'Perum Parra Nadu', in the previous days and gradually being known as Perumbranad, in the latter days as legend has it.

'Kallooppara' was once the part of Thiruvalla taluk and with the formation of the Pathanamthitta district in 1983, a new taluk was chipped up by the name of  Mallapally taluk  and Kallooppara became a part of it. This prosperous land of Kallooppara was once governed by the Royalties of the Thekkumkoor Dynasty and Edappally Thampurans (rulers), who always had a deep concern and love for their subjects, who in turn did feel the same. A land with no class demarcation and love and respect for all was a model that we can cherish and learn from even today.
