Malabar is a region in South India. The name of the region is thought to be derived from the Malayalam words mala and vaaram, westernized into -bar. The region is a part of The Malabar Coast, which in historical contexts, refers to India's southwest coast, lying on the narrow coastal plain of Karnataka and Kerala states between the Western Ghats range and the Arabian Sea.
