The town is situated on the banks of Manjeri River and it is believed that the name "Manjeri" originated from 'Mani-Jerri' meaning a place where bamboos are grown. Etymology [ edit ] The name Manjeri comes from two words, mani (meaning bamboo) and jerri (meaning forest). The word Jerri in Malayalam language means a forest with thick growth of bamboo. It was also called as Mankari during British rule. In ancient times, this area was covered by dense forests of wild bamboos. Hence its name became Mankari which later changed to Manjerikadu or simply Mannarikkadu ("the land where Bamboo grows"). Later it became known as Mannarikkara due to fusion between Tamil and Malayalam languages. During British rule, the spelling changed into present form – "Manjery".
