Lakkidi Gateway

Lakkidi Gateway in Wayanad district is one of the haunted places in India. During the times of the British rule in India, an English engineer had sought help from a nomad Karinthandan who helped the engineer through the shortest route to Thamarassery. After crossing the route, the engineer killed the nomad so that this secret route is not shared with any other. Since then, Karinthandan's spirit is believed to have wandered in that region till a priest trapped the spirit on chains and tied it to a tree there. Even today, you can see the tree on which the chains are tied.
