    ... impressive. No doubt, it would be a lot more famous and promoted by Indians if it had been dedicated to some old Indian Princess or strange Hindu god as opposed to a dead ex colonial queen. We didn't pay to enter the building as it was 1.50 (150 rupees)each and that's a bit expensive these days, instead we spent 4pence (4 rupees) to visit the gardens and look at it from the outside.

    Today we go out yet again to look at more pandals. There are a lot of gods and we have to worship them all!

    Although these photos perhaps don't give the full picture, these replicas are HUGE.

    ... autorickshaw rides. They are like tin cans on wheels but are much less scary than death defying taxi journeys and a lot cheaper. They go a lot slower than taxis too and have "natural air conditioning". The drivers always seemed much more friendly and easier to bargain with.
