Have you ever seen a tree that is chained as if it is a criminal? No? Alright. There's a tree located in Lakkidi (Kerala) that is chained similar to the criminals during the British rule. It is a major attraction and people from distant places throng to see this. It is an ordinary tree that stands tall at a height of 25 feet and has its trunk and branches chained. This tree is known as the prison of a disturbed spirit of a tribal chieftain that was shot dead by a British official after discovering a shorter route to pass the nearby ghats.
After the death of the chieftain, his restless spirit began harming the passersby. To cease his notorious acts, a local priest was contacted and he chained the spirit in the tree. Since then, the tree has been chained.
