Uthramkulangara Vishnu Temple Pond Story

It was believed that if a person wrote a note and kept it on the step of the pond, then the person would get vessels, money, and gold. After use, the things need to be returned back to the pond. But once a person did not return the things he had got from the pond and from that day onwards the pond stopped fulfilling the needs of people.
