Eruthempathy is a village in the Palakkad district, state of Kerala, India. It forms a part of the Eruthampathy gram panchayat.[1]

Demographics[edit]

As of 2001 India census, Eruthempathy had a population of 9,529 with 4,689 males and 4,840 females.[2]

There are two rivers close by - the Korayar and Varattayar - but today they are dry due to deforestation and misuse of land. The Kerala Water Authority decided to help Eruthempathy and neighboring villages with their water issues.[3]
