After visiting Mamallapuram’s Five Rathas, I decided to take the long way back to town. I headed away from the tourist hub in a round about journey of discovery of my very own.
I idled along a road behind the town until I came to another old temple site. I wandered along the path circling the boulders then headed back to the main part of town. Before I reached my hotel, I spotted an old house. On my first visit to Tamil Nadu eons ago, these houses were a common sight. On this visit they seemed to have almost disappeared.
