Siruthavur Megalithic Burial Sites (Kanchipuram - Tamil Nadu)

After Thirupporur, my next stop was Siruthavur aka Sirudavoor. Last time when I ventured here, I went into the Siruthavur village and couldn't find any stone circles. 

This time luckily, I had the contact of fellow blogger Saravana Prabhu who had visited the place earlier who guided me to reach the place. 

Well, my mistake was getting into the village. I should have continued on the highway a bit further and I would have spotted the stone circles!

Sun was almost setting when I reached this place. Just on the right side of the highway were the stone circles. I did not even have strain to find them like in Thiruporur. I went farther along the dirt tracks to the right of the highway. 

There were several smaller flat stones. I guess they were tools used by the stone age men!
Deeper in, the reserved forest started and the sun had almost set and I found no point in venturing further!

To Reach Thirupporur Megalithic Burial Site: Refer my earlier post.
From Thirupporur Site: 9 km (1 km on Chengalpet-Thiruporur Road. Left turn and about 7 km on Thiruporur - Thirukkazhukundram Road). You'll spot on the right of the highway in the middle of nowhere!
