memories of family outings.....

Prince Charming holds court / fort......

A thickly wooded hill as backdrop with lush tropical vegetation and gurgling brooks. A vast fort with sacred pools at the foothills. Would a  Prince Charming - an Azhagar - wish for a better address.

Azhagarkoyil or Tirumaaliruncholai  has everything going for it. Enchanting setting, wonderful architecture , great artistic flourishes .....and now, its a certified no plastic-bag  zone too ! Even in summer, it is breezy here , thanks to the hill.
Dated : 3rd. or 4th. Century.


A visit leaves one drenched in  a big dose of oldworld romance !....
With a nice touch of mystery in the divinity behind permanently closed doors, Pathinettam Padi Karuppu !
