There is a story being told about the discovery of Thamarassery Ghat or Thamarassery Churam. Karinthandan, a native tribal man of Wayand district helped British engineers to construct a road from Calicut to Wayand. The Viceroy had annouunced a reward for those who build a road from Calicut o Wayanad. In order to gain the reward and fame, the engineer led his guide to a peak area and shot him dead. The soul of Karinthandan started troubling passengers; occuring several accidents at the Ghat. The natives called a panditji and he chanined the soul of karinthandan to a huge banyan tree . this tree is known as Changala Maram or Chain Tree. There is an intresting feature about this tree. It is believed that the chain is getting lengthened as the tree grows taller. Although this tree is getting taller, the straight chain hanging on the tree has been just touching the ground.As soon as you cross the welcome board to wayand you can see the Chain Tree. People now consider Karinthandan as the guard of the Thamarassery Ghat and Wayand district. A small temple is constructed near the Chain Tree and people pray at the temple for the safe journey through the Ghat.
