Well, this post wraps up the Srirangam series and this is all about the musings on the trip! Remember I already mentioned about the 'Turkish' Fish Spa in Cauvery! Btw, below pic is of me getting off the river, carrying the entire huge skirt of the traditional outfit of Tamil Nadu, Pavadai Davani! Lolz!
Cats were everywhere just beyond the 4th compound wall of Srirangam - the wall beyond which is purely only temple! Actually there was a mom cat and some 6-7 kittens!
I shot this pic at night, when I went for Tirumanjanam (making the Lord, sleep) and returned by after 10 at night and shot this kitty at that time. Somehow the lighting in this pic, reminded me of Rembrandt's paintings!
The beautiful flowers tied up as strands and circles, ready to Lord's decoration!
Btw, travelling within the temple is especially made easy for elder citizens! Thanks to these recently introduced cabs!!!
The best part of Srirangam was food!!! Food at the Prasadham counter was so yummy. Esp. the Puttu (sweetened rice powder) and Puliodharai (tamarind rice)... Another factor, of what made food so special was this hotel in Srirangam called Sri Ragavendra Annapoorani Homely Mess. Its run by V.Gopala Iyengar & Family. Here's their ph.no: 0431-2432001; 9442040606. Make sure you have food there. Food is simple south Indian but very very yummy! Its very small and can accommodate only 12 people at a time. But the wait to eat is absolutely worth!!! How cute is this message on the board, outside the hotel!!!
