There are many remnants of Pazhassi Raja's hiding places in and around of Peravoor. But British were on his trail but failed to catch him. On 1805, 30 November, Raja and retainers were camped near close to Karnataka on shore of a stream named Mavila or Mavila Tod [not far from Pulpally]. , So in 1778, Hyder’s vassal, the Raja of Chirakkal, besieged Thalasseri and enforced an economic blockade-under orders from Hyder himself. That caused a delay in journey of Anderson-a delay that had fatal consequence for British. They also destroyed the whole fort.

But for time being, Raja was in a strong position. When Hyder Ali of the Kingdom of Mysore occupied Malabar in 1773 the Raja of Kottayam found political asylum in Travancore. British called their wars with Pazhassi Rajah as Cotiote War. “The former I have now in my possession, the latter I presented to Captain Clephen.”, “The Raja’s body was taken up and put into my palangueen while the lady who was dreadfully reduced from sickness was put into Captain Clephen’s.” According to Baber, Pazhassi’s body was given due respect.

But to ill luck of rebels a reinforcement which had caught up with blocked British army outflanked the rebel entrenchment and took a large number of prisoners. 1200 troops and artillery under Major General was sent by Bombay Government to deal with Pazhassi. They sent a Mysore Commission to seize Wayanad and planned to annexe it to either Canara or Coimbatore. But Kungan and Chandu decided to take risk.
