KKTM Govt.College-Kodungallur Kunjikuttan Thampuran Memorial Government College-situated at Pullut near Kodungallur is named after the great scholar-poet Kunjikuttan Thampuran who came to be called “The Kerala Vyasa” for his brilliant rendering of the great epic, ‘ The Maha Bharatha’ into the vernacular. KKTM Govt.College owes its origin to the enthusiasm shown and initiative taken by the enlightened people of Kodungallur nearly four decades ago. The college was established on 1st July 1965,to commemorate the services rendered by the late poet Kunjikuttan Thampuran to Malayalam literature.
