Alappuzha is the land of lakes, lagoons and fresh water rivers. Houseboat cruising is one of the biggest attractions of this lake town.

I visited the Chain Tree at Lakkidi, Wayanad last week during my trip to Wayand and Ooty. The Chain Tree was not really part of my itinerary but since it was just opposite to the hotel I stayed and it was one of the top attractions as per the tourist guide given by the hotel, I decided to take a look. In fact, the tree was visible directly from my hotel room (The Wayanad Gate hotel) but I didn't notice anything special about the tree. It looked just like any other trees in that area. But I got a bit curious when I saw many cars and tourist buses stop by and taking photos.

The tree was just 50 meters from the hotel and I walked to it with my camera. As I approach the tree, I noticed the big steel chaning sunken into the trunk of the tree. Also, there was some signboards that says "Changala maram", "Chain tree", "No parking in front of Chain Tree" etc. 

I was still wondering what is so special about this tree. There was a small tea shop run by a lady and while sipping my tea there, she asked me if I know the story about the tree. Looks like she read my mind and she explained the history (or, legend?) associated with the tree. That was an interesting and touching story. Here is the summary of it:

During 18th century, the British decided to explore the routes through the Wayanad ghats to transport spices from Kozhikkode and other parts of the ghats. They took help from a local adivasi moopan called "Karinthandan". After identifying all the secret routes with the help of the moopan, a British engineer shot him dead to take full credit of identifying the new routes. Later, it is believed that the soul of Karinthandan started haunting the travellers and finally, a priest chained the soul into a tree, which is now called the Chain tree. I did more research on this legend and found a lot of information from the historical books and other sources. I have shared what I learnt in this blog - http://www.indiatravelblog.com/resources/3318-Chain-Tree-Wayanad.aspx

Currently, there is a small temple attached to the tree. The deity of the temple is none other than "Karinthandan" who was killed by the British after taking his help to identify the unknown routes through the ghats.

Introduction
Born into a middle class family in India with two sisters and one brother. Growing up in Malayattoor was fun. It's a small village with lakes, river and mountains, which makes Kerala The Gods own Country.

This was a memorable part of growing up since one could fish in the lakes and swim in the river. In this small village we had only one school named St.Thomas High School but always called as 'THE SCHOOL'. Every one who had an opportunity to study went there and probably that is why everyone knew each other.

Initially I wanted to be an agriculturist, which was the means for the daily bread of most of our villagers. Moreover, I just Love it. But I decided to select the traditional profession of our family : Teaching.

I completed B.Ed from Kerala University Teacher Education Centre, located at the Alapuzha [The most beautiful place of Kerala and is famous for boat race and it's backwaters].

After B.Ed, I had a second thought about teaching. And I reached Kongu Engineering College, Erode for MCA. Three years of Engineering changed my life.

The last few years were crucial in my life. I was going from knowing everybody to knowing nobody, from the world of soft feelings to the world of software, and from the world of men to the world of machines!!

And all these make me NOSTALGIC......

We stayed in Hotel Palace Plaza, Mysore in 2012. It was a pleasant experience. The room was very well maintained and the staff was very helpful. What we liked the most there is the restaurant. We are foodies and really enjoyed the food there.

This is our favorite destination for food. We drive all the way from Kalamassery atleast 2 times a month for the food here. Our favorite items are the triple fried rice and dragon chicken. The ambiance is very good. Sometimes the unusually long wait makes us bit frustrated but we do enjoy the food here.
