THE ADYAR – A CULTURAL MAPPING, ONE DAY TRIP TO THE TEMPLES AND HERITAGE SITES ON THE BANKS OF RIVER ADYAR. SRI VISALAKSHI SAMEDHA SRI KASI VISWANATHAR TEMPLE.

A Continuation to the previous post. 
27th August 2016
Our second stop was at a Shiva temple at St. Thomas Mount, which was once called as Parangi malai.  The temple must be 200 to 300 years old and only a recent inscription is there.

On the entrance wall there is an inscription tablet,  which speaks about the place of the temple  Bringi malai ( from the recent period inscriptions ) and the properties it has for its maintenance.  On the opposite side of the Rajagopuram, the  nandavavanam  was completely encroached. The gate pillar Nandhi was also merged to the house staircase. For the details of my previous visit please  click the link…. Click Here

This war Cemetery was not in our agenda and only few people after taking our breakfast ( Before others completes their breakfast ) at Hotel Sangeetha ventured in to it. Compared to my previous visit this temple it was restricted to take photographs.  During December 2015 flood the cemetery was submerged under  knee deep water.
THE WAR CEMETERY
The stone slabs with inscriptions were installed in memory of the British peoples killed  during world war, between 1939 to 1945. Actually the bodies are not buried here.  These memory stones include the personal worked in army as well as civilians also. For the details of the cemetery …
