At picturesque Kozhikode-Bangalore highway, there locates a wonderful scenic hill resort Lakkidi (well-known for receiving the highest rainfall in India after Cherrapunji). Taking a way up to Thamarassery Ghat, there is a banyan tree bounded by a large chain around its trunk. It’s said that a British engineer wanted to build a road through Wayanad. A tribal showed him the Thamarassery Ghat as an easy way to reach Mysore from Kozhikode. The British engineer wanted to take the whole credit, so he murdered the tribal and buried his body under a nearby banyan tree. After the completion of road, this particular place witnessed a spurt in the number of accident. After that, an exorcism was practiced at that place and spirit of the tribal was bound with chain inside the banyan tree. Since then, there has been a dramatic fall in the number of accidents there.
