A TEMPLE FOR KANNAKI

No one has attempted to probe into the mysteries of the chamber, as it is fraught with dreadful results. A carpenter who was once repairing the roof could resist his curiosity to peep inside. He is said to have lost his eyesight.

The Western Wall of the secret chamber, against which a crimson cloth is hung, is hold sacred. Lamps are lit and regular rituals are held. However only certain privileged persons like the members of the family of the local chief visiting this temple can view this cloth and worship. This can be done only through the western door of the sanctum of Kali, which is opened only on such rare occasions.

The presence of the mysterious chamber is worth investigating. It is presumed to be a megalith which literally means a big stone but technically used by anthropologists and archaeologists to denote stone-structures or monuments in which our ancients placed the material remains of the dead-and in this case these may be of Kannaki. (Readers may refer to Secret Chamber by Shri V. T. Induchudan published by the Cochin Devaswom Board, Trichur for an elaboration of the theme).
