This Kerala Horror Story Is Not For The Weak of Heart

Did you know that this haunted place is located in God’s Own Country, Kerala? To learn more, read our entire story, but do so at your own peril.

The Thamarassery Ghat Pass in Wayanad, which lies tucked away over the Western Ghats in the Wayanad district, is one of the numerous centuries-old haunted sites in Kerala. The Wayanad Chain Tree is said to have originated there during the colonial era.

It is reported that the British took this route—which, at the time, was only known to a few number of indigenous tribes due to its dense jungles and copious amounts of rainfall—to enter Wayanad. It seems that a British engineer killed a tribesman to take credit for discovering the path after tricking him into giving him the directions.

The most astounding notion is that the renowned chain grows with this 25-foot-tall tree as it grows. Furthermore, in honor of Karinthandan, a little temple known as Changala Muneeswaran Kovil was constructed. An annual parade is held in his honor by the People’s Action for Educational and Economic Development of Tribal People (PEEP), an organization that works with the tribes in the Keralan districts of Wayanad, Malappuram, Kannur, and Kozhikode.
