History of Kerala
Kerala was formed by merging the princely state of Cochin, the kingdom of Travancore and the Kingdom of the Zamorin of Calicut. Until about 3000 BC, Kerala had a business relationship with the Indus Valley civilization and its spices and items such as sandalwood, ivory, teakwood etc. were exported to many countries of the West. Kerala gave considerable space in the commercial map of the ancient world. It is believed that peacocks, monkeys, ivory and spices which were received by King Solomon, were imported from Kerala. It was 700 BC. That Dravid moved from the Mediterranean region to south India. Aryans entered Kerala from northern India to 300 BC.
On July 1, 1949, the princely states of Travancore and Cochin were integrated to form Travancore - Cochin (Thiru-Cochi) state. But it was on November 1, 1956, that Kerala as a state came into existence. This was by the consolidation of Malabar province, which was a part of the Madras Presidency and the Travancore - Cochin State.
