The Ocean and the Sky

The sky was a bright blue in Tiruchendur, which was a nice change from the gloomy grey skies we have here. The green of the Indian Ocean made a beautiful contrast to the brilliant sky.
The 2000 year old temple to Lord Kartikeya is on the shore. The temple has a tall 'gopuram' with beautiful carvings. The sea air has turned the stone carvings white.

  12. Sea and sky






    Lovely scenery, it is nice to see the sun after a,lot of rain. It is interesting how the salt in the air has made the building go white. I have to google it!
