Valathungal or Valathumgal is a neighbourhood and suburb of Kollam city in the Indian state of Kerala.[1] It is the 30th ward in Kollam Municipal Corporation.[2] Valathungal is a fairly densely populated area of the city.[3] Eravipuram railway station is very close to Valathungal.

Importance[edit]

Valathungal lies close to the city's major transportation hubs. The presence of a significant number of schools and religious worship centres in the area have increased Valathungal's importance among the neighbourhoods of Kollam.[4][5] The government VHSS and Boys High School are two of the important schools in the locality.[6] Valathungal is about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from Pallimukku, which is on National Highway-66.[7]

There were previously two different municipal councils for the huge Valathungal area (Valathungal West and Valathungal East), which in 2005 merged to form a single council.[8] Valathungal council is in the Eravipuram zone of Kollam Municipal Corporation. The Eravipuram Government Homoeo Pharmacy is located in Valathungal.[9]
