A view of the Shiva temple at Gangaikondacholapuram, near Kumbakonam Tamil Nadu. The Nandi, in the forefront is made of lime and mortar. Posted by Picasa

wow! This reminds me of Thiruvidaimarudur (my father's home town) where there is massive Nandi like this.. (but, the Nandi is covered in that temple)

Hi there,
I was wondering how you skipped from Son to grandson . Great you posted these too.......


You know this place is really great because hardly anyone goes there! You can stay on the lawns all day and admire the sculpture.

My dad tried to tell me the Thiruvidaimarudur nandi is bigger too :-)

Hi Sathish and Tilotamma, I have not been to Thiruvidaimarudur, but after what you have said I will grab the first chance to go there.

If it is not your dad's hometown then I wouldn't bother :-)
