Venad Agreement

During the “reign” of Umayamma (1677-1864), the Southern Venad was invaded by a Muslim adventurer. [10] The British East India Company founded a factory at Vizhinjam in 1664 and a fortress was built at Ajengo in 1695. [10] About 150 company men from the Anjengo factory, who went to an audience with the Queen Mother, were lynched by a mob in the “Attingal Home” of 1721. [10] Ravi Varma, who reigned from 1721 to 1729, made formal agreements with the society and the Nayaks of Madurai. [10] The main objective of the submission was to strengthen the king`s position against regional nobles (such as the “Ettuvittil Pillamar”) and other “enemy elements” in Venad. [10] Kayamkulam and the surrounding areas were a habitat for Brahmans and other upper-caste villagers. Kayamkulam was the original capital of the ancient Odanadu region. A war then broke out between Marthanda Varma and Deshinganathu Raja. Many wars took place between them after the liberation of King Kayamkulam King Marthanda Varma.

After the Battle of Kulachal in 1741 with the Dutch and Travancore and the Dutch, Marthanda Varma again attacked Kayamkulam, but failed. They will shake hands. It became known as the “discharge” in 1742. The Venad army defeated King Kayamkulam who violated the agreement. In 1746, Kayamkulam was added to Travancore. Krishnapuram Palace is an important destination in the history of Kayamkulam. It is believed that this was built by Kayamkulam King and By Marthanda Varma Maharaja. Krishnapuram Palace is now an important tourist attraction. The wallpaper “Gajendrakamsham” is very famous. Other famous temples are Krishnapuram SreeKrishnaswamy Temple, Virshwara Temple, Teaching Temple, Eruvil Temple, and Cherawali Temple…
