Kandigai Quarry (Kanchipuram - Tamil Nadu)

Last post I had written about my visit to Muruganatheeswarar Temple, which I visited enroute while going to Unaimancheri. Enroute I also wanted to visit a Shiva temple in Kandigai in the Kelambakkam - Vandalur Road. Trying to explore hunting for this temple, I got into a small street, where I spotted this abandoned quarry

A quarry when alive, creates an ecological imbalance. But when its dysfunctional, it does create an unusual landscape.

From Tambaram: 16km via Vandalur and then on Vandalur - Kelambakkam Road
From Medavakkam: 14km on Medavakkam - Mambakkam Road and then towards Vandalur at Mambakkam


An ardent traveler by passion. I am a wanderlust.. Read more about me here.
