History of Allepey
Alappuzha (also known as Alleppey) gets its historic name from the past of Kerala. Though the history of this region in the Paleolithic age is not clear, many believe that the coastal regions of Alappuzha were originally under water and later developed from the salt and silt deposits that helped give them shape. Kuttanadu dates back to the Sangam age and the early Cheras had their homes or Kuttuvans (today called houseboats) in Kuttanadu.

Christianity spread in this region as early as the first century AD. Some of the churches are located at Chertala and it was founded by St Thomas, one of the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ.His presence made a tremendous impact on the region. Dramatic changes influenced Alappuzha once more in the ninth century. This was when the second Chera Empire propagated the spread of religion and culture.
