As his very name suggests, this prince was a strong ruler and his reign was characterized by firm and vigorous administration. He punished criminals and wrong doers mercilessly. He meted out justice without any mercy.

By the end of the 18th century the power of the feudal chieftains had been crushed and royal authority had become supreme. Saktan Tampuran was mainly responsible for the destruction of the power of the feudal chieftains and increase of royal power.

The antifeudal measures of Saktan Tampuran coupled with the several administrative reforms introduced by him marked the end of the medieval period in the history of Cochin and ushered in the modern epoch of progress.
