Kudallur is in the Palakkad district of Kerala. It is in Pattambi taluk, bordering Malappuram district, also on the banks of Bharathapuzha. This village was originally in Ponnani taluk of Palakkad, before the formation of Malappuram district. The writer M. T. Vasudevan Nair lived there.

It is at Kudallur, exactly at Koottakadavu the two rivers Nila and Thootha meet. Therefore, it is said that the place got the name from the confluence of these rivers, with 'koodal' meaning joining and 'oor' meaning place in Malayalam, thus a meeting place of the rivers. Kudallur Hills, mentioned in Nair's stories, are the another point of attraction. The village is in Anakkara Panchayath, Thrithala block i.e. in Pattambi Taluk.

The other Kudallur is located in Chittur taluk in Palakkad district itself, on the northern banks of Gayathripuzha River, a tributary of Bharathapuzha. Nemmara is the nearest town from Kudallur. The late historian Prof.K V Krishna Iyer hails from this Kudallur.
