Sultan Bathery, also known as Sulthan's Battery (pronounced in Malayalam as ‘Sul-than Ba-the-ry’), 98 km from Calicut, was formerly known as Ganapathivattom. It derivers its present name from Tippu Sultan of Mysore who built a fort here in the 18th century. It lies approximately 25 kms, from Kalpetta. Associated with Hyder Ali and Tipu Sulthan, Sulthan's Bathery no longer has a fort now. It is worth visiting for the Jain temple, which has some interesting stone carvings. Sulthan Bathery can be seen on a drive from Kalpetta to Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, Muthanga.
This is located in Wayanad district, 96km from Calicut, passing through thick forest, coffee, rubber and tea estates, oranges and other cash crops, winding and climbing the hills. Sulthan Bathery, a small town is only 19km from Karnataka border and is also a health resort, hill station and a historical centre, noted for a fort built by Tipu Sultan in the 18th century. The business in this small town is mostly run by Muslims.
12 kms from Sulthan Bathery, 3 caves are located at a height of 1000 mts on Ambukuthi mala near Ambalavayal. The new stone age pictorial writings on the walls of these natural caves at Edakkal are the evidence of the civilizations that existed in the regions in the pre-historic times. The caves can be accessed only by a 1Km trekking trail from Edakkal. Morning hours are the best time to visit these caves. Entry is permitted only upto 1700 hrs.
