Many famous foreign travelers, who visited here, have described about this area with high praise. This temple of education is a blessing in disguise to the students of rural areas in Kannur and Kasaragod districts. Payyanur Educational Society was formed on 25th August 1963. In May 1965, the Foundation stone of the college was laid by chief patron, late Vyghram S. Ramakrishna Iyer. In 1968 the college was affiliated to newly formed Calicut University. The Founder Principal of the college was Prof. P.K. Surendranath, a great economist, educationalist, writer and an eminent Orator.
