Palarivattom (MRC) is a region in the city of Kochi in the state of Kerala, India. It is part of the District of Ernakulam. The region makes a four directional intersection at its highway signal point on the Kochi Bypass, which leads to 1) the Vyttila Junction in the South (which further extends to the Southern regions of Kerala like Marari, Alleppey, Kollam, Trivandrum etc), 2) Kakkanad in its western direction, which is the IT hub of Kochi city, 3) the main junction of Edapallyin its north end, which then diverges into the Northern and North-western regions of Kerala such as Kodangallur, Guruvayur, Thrissur, Calicut etc, and 4) eastward towards the central town area of Kochi.The junction is sometimes also referred as pipeline junction.
It is a commercial area, which gained importance as a connecting point between the city’s different taluks when the district’s administration was moved to the nearby suburb of Kakkanad.
The name Palarivattom has evolved from the name Pagalnarivattom. Pagal Nari Vattom means, a place where jackals roam even in the day time. Nowadays the region is a bustling suburb and a concrete jungle, with no jackal habitation.
