SRI KARANEESWARAR TEMPLE, SAIDAPET 
Reached Karaneeswarar temple through Brahmin Street and Karaneeswarar Koil street.  On the way Mr Madhusudhanan told that there are about 24 Vinayagar temples in Saidapet with different names like Kooththaadum Vinayagar, Karkada Vinayagar etc, He also pointed out the Sri Gurulinga Swamikal Jeeva Samadhi, in which local people used to do pooja before starting of any important functions in their homes. During my earlier visit to the Sri Karaneeswarar Temple  I could not  get the full view of the inscription dated 1887 AD and 1919 AD  in the front mandapam, This time I took photograph and up dated my web blog post on Sri Karaneeswarar Temple. These two inscriptions speaks about the donations given to the temple for regular functions and pooja. Also had seen Pattinathar and his guru Pathragiriyar’s reliefs at the entrance of Rajagopuram, which are installed during 1939 AD. The details also written in the facebook with photographs.

SUB-URBAN RAILWAY STATION, SAIDAPET.
Our final destination was to the west side of the Sub-Urban railway station, where Nalandaway Foundation students painted the colourful graffiti  of film personalities of Shivaji, Kamalahasan, Nagesh etc., on the wall. It was an awesome view. After taking snaps we said good bye to each other  and hoping to meet in the next Heritage walk. The SUB-URBAN Railway station was also posted in my facebook.
