Trichy, as some of you may know is a city of temples. While there are two most famous ones- Malaikottai and Sri Rangam, little do many know about the Erumbeeswarar temple in the Trichy-Tanjore highway. It is a small temple located on a rock, whose architecture is very similar to that of the one in Tanjore. It was also constructed before several hundred years .
Erumbeeswarar temple and Azeez Biriyani were our regular outing destinations apart from Sea Kings in BHEL Township. While my friends are inside (inside meaning, really inside, I dont know what it is called) the temple to perform their rituals, I used stand near the compound wall, enjoying every minute of the cool breeze sent down as a blessing from the Almighty. The views of the nearby country side in the evening and the lights of the city when it gets dark are one of the several beautiful memories that I carry with me from my Trichy days.
I used to like the smell of camphor and jasmine flowers planted on the lawns of the temple. I just realised that I don’t have any picture taken there and searched for it in the net. And I found a beautiful collection of pictures in flickr, enjoy!!
