Sree Moolam Popular Assembly of Travancore was the first popularly elected legislature in the history of India. Its predecessor legislative council was formed in Travancore in 1888 with 8 appointed members. Sree Moolam Thirunal Ramavarma who became king of Travancore in 1886 set up this unique institution through an order issued on March 30, 1888. In 1898, the strength of the Council was increased to 15, nine officials and six non-officials. In 1904, the Sree Moolam Popular Assembly (known in local language as Sree Moolam Praja Sabha) was formed with 88 members to provide for increased participation of the people in the administration.
