According to the Sangam literature, Thondi, the capital of Chera Kingdom, is now known as Kadalundi. Kadalundi had trade relations with foreign countries like Rome and Arabia. After the breakdown of the Chera Kingdom dynasty rooted in Kadalundi, Parappanad Kovilakam became the rulers of Kadalundi. They gave permission for the Dutch to build a fort in Kadalundi. Even though the fort collapsed after a war with Zamorians, we can see the remnants in Mulla in Kadalundi.
