We walk to an only partially restored structure, possibly a gate house on the centreline of the temple. There are large cracks through it, but also markings on some of the stones, presumably in preparation for restoration.
Driving on toward Thanjavur, we pass through a town with a long arcade of eucalyptus poles at either side of the ...
