Thrithala is an archaeologically important site which is located 75 km from Palakkad, on the banks of the River Bharatapuzha. The most fascinating thing about Thrithala is that it is an ancient archaeological site of Kerala and is still well preserved even today. The ruins of a large mud fort with a deep moat hewn from laterite and the Siva temple are notable cultural monuments.

The Kattil Madom Temple, a domed structure made of granite slabs, on the Pattambi-Guruvayoor road is a Buddhist monument believed to date back to the 9th or 10th century. The temple probably marks the transition from the Chola to the Pandya style of architecture.
