This place near the Perandoor Canal was the haunt of a notorious rowdy, Vaduthala Mathai. “This man once abused a young woman who complained to the Raja of Edappally. The Raja ordered that Mathai be hanged to death. The hanging took place near a culvert across the canal. It is believed that Mathai’s ghost used to frequent this spot. Many feared going there after dark and even walking along the rail track. Local fishermen used to make an offering to the spirit of Mathai before getting down to work. Even today this belief exists in these parts of the city”.

10) Tripunithura 
Inside the fort area of Tripunithura there once stood a magnificent palace called Devatha Malika. This Dutch building was constructed to please Shaktan Thampuran, the then Maharaja of Cochin. But no one dared to live in it. As the name suggests it was believed to be the abode of celestial spirits. The building stood in a huge compound called Yakshithoppu. K.T. Rama Varma in his work Kairali Vidheyan Rama Varma Appan Thampuran writes, “When the members of the family (Cochin Royal Family) gathered together Devatha Malika used to be the topic of discussion. Even during afternoons people have supposedly heard voices, sounds from inside the building. And at night there was the pervading smell of the palapoovu (flowers of Alstonia Scholaris).” This palace was demolished during the reign of Rama Varma XVI or Chowarayiltheepetta Thampuran (king who died at Chowara).
