  • Dear all...

    Read through the chat sessions- I tried to participate, but couldn't :-)
    I'm writing here some points which I thought deserve mention:

    1. The van's a great idea- no other transport is better to stop and start as
    we'd wish.

    2. There was some talk of going thru Kanchi- it's a great idea. I'd like to
    know exactly what we're going to see there. Kanchi, by itself, has about 18
    popular temples- all of them fairly huge and having historical importance
    (the divya desams and several Siva temples, I mean). 'Jina Kanchi', in
    particular is cool, in my opinion, but Kanchi might well take up a whole day
    if we want to see *all* the temples. I'm sure that can't be, so...what's the
    plan? And about the aranmanai:-)- there was nothing but a mound of rubble
    the last time I saw it, occupied by huts. For all I know, it may not exist

    3. Thakkolam. The last we saw, it was a pretty small place with a road
    branching off from the main road leading to it. We asked about its
    significanace, but it turned out that there was nothing to see. There *may*
    be a temple- aside from that, there are no signs of a battle or anything

    4. Temple Timings. If we really want to visit a good many temples, a very
    early start is required- 'cause we'll have to travel all over the place.
    Most small temples close shop at 11AM, sometimes sooner. (Sometimes, the
    archagars have to be dragged out of home:-)

    5. Itinery. I think we'll have to plan a good deal - with the kilometers we
    can travel in a day, with the places we want to visit thrown in. Meal times
    too- we can't afford to be stranded in an out of the way village with a huge
    temple, but no eatery.

    Can I offer a suggestion? What about taking a parceled lunch from the place
    we have our breakfast to last us the whole day? That way, we won't have to
    get back to a town each time we want to eat.

    Anyone has any more suggestions? Do share it.

    Love, Pavithra.

Howdy, Stranger!
