Final day

I leave back home tomorrow to tackle the bull by its horns. But until then, I am not letting the summer sun go waste.  Visited a third temple of this temple town this morning.  Having been misinformed of the time, I went at 10.30 AM, only to have the door closed on me. Not to be deterred, I scaled the long, deserted corridors, up and down, for an hour and a half, until the doors to the deity reopened at noon for the midday worship.

I tried walking along the sidewalk of the main sanctum, but the stone floors that had absorbed all the sun’s blessings didn’t think so, and I took shelter in the above roofed corridor which was a good five degrees cooler.

    Mmmmm…. isn’t it even better that the temple was closed when you showed up? Looking at your two pics makes me wish so badly that I were there – both for the koluthara veyyil and the delightful long temple corridor to walk in.
