Chendamangalam, North Paruvur Located in North Paravoor, 14 Kms from Cherai and 42 Kms from Kochi, Chendamangalam is well known for handloom weaving and coir making. The annual fair called "Mattachanda" (Barter System) is held here on the eve of the harvest festival Vishu in April. This place is also famous for its three rivers, seven inlets, hillocks and vast expanses of green plains.

Ruins of the 15th century Vypeen Kotta Seminary built in 16th century by the Portuguese and the Kottayil Kovillakam palace are the other tourist attractions here. This land was once the abode of the Paliath Achans, the prime ministers of the Maharajas of Kochi. Their residence, the Paliam Palace represents the architectural splendour of Kerala. The Palace is over 450 years old and houses a collection of historic documents and relics. The hillocks at Kottayil Kovilakom present a view of a church, Krishna temple, mosque and a Jewish synagogue, an example of religious harmony that existed here.
