Trichy Temple Under Construction, Tamil Nadu, India

January 28, 2015

We stopped at Tiruchirappalli, Trichy for short, on route from Puducherry to Madurai. Touted as having the larges temple in India, it may be worth a stop at other times but at the moment there isn’t much to see. All the towers are encased in scaffolding and green cloth while they clean and paint the riotous jumble of figures covering the structures. Inside, the complex is also one big construction site. After seeing Madurai, I wouldn’t bother going to Trichy until they have finished the restoration project. Our driver told us that they do this type of makeover every 15 years or so.
