Travel logs of Thayumanasamy Somasundaram
- Chennai | Chengal Pattu | Vedaraniam
In December 2009 we visited Chennai as part of our trip to India
We also stayed in Chengal Pattu where my brother resides.
Finally we spent quite some time in Vedaraiam (Vedaranyam, Thirumaraikadu) where I grow up as a kid and where my parents still live.
After lunch we headed to the Sanjusangen-do temple (aka Rengeo-in, Hall of the Lotus King) by another bus from the Kyoto JR station. In the main hall (where you have wear the shoes provided by the temple) you see 1001 armedKannons. It is considered by one of the oldest and longest wooden structures in the world (the temple name literally means Hall with thirty-three spaces). Even the court yard outside the temple with corridors filled with equally spaced orange pillars make this place really nice to visit and visually very appealing .
