Flowers and Gandhi

A travel blog entry by judy.tagell


... the end. The next day we went to the Meenakshi Temple which is definitely worth a look. You can't take pictures inside but it's beautifully decorated and very ornate. There are lots of colours everywhere and people are praying, chatting and gathering around. Like most temples I've been to in India, it's got a great atmosphere and you feel very welcome there. Chris, Gill, Kylie and I went onto the Gandhi museum. Again, Gandhi falls ...

The British Evils and Three Tits

A travel blog entry by laurenw_is


... tri-boobed lady statue ANYWHERE?!?! This entire temple is a giant tease as far as I'm concerned. I know how Sellattamman feels. How you have such graphic legends and don't include the accompanying artwork I will never know. Although there are sections that are for Hindu's only. Maybe that's where they keep the three breasted statues. Lucky *******s. Overall: if 10 is “the most amazing temple ever”, 15 is “meh”, and 10.6 is ...

Christmas in London's Emporium

... arrives in Madras, India as clerk to East India Company. The British East India Company was effectively an independent imperial power with its own army, policies and governance. Robert Clive was the general who brought India into the British Empire - introducing the British palate to spices and, above all, the world’s best teas.

Not the best week.

... a place to put our bags but this place was well and truly grim! It made the hotel Olivia look like the Ritz. But it was only for our bags. So we went to the Sri Maneesk temple a 6 hectare massive temple complex was pretty impressive however we couldn't take cameras in but we could our phones so got a few pictures on them anyway. There was a elephant in the temple who was blessing people! You handed the Elephant the money he took it in his trunk, tapped you on the head ...

Camp life and first 50!

... blocks up, have marked out the windows and have laid the foundations for the compost unit we are also making. We would have been a bit further along but last Friday our stone mason got eaten by one of the local dogs... well... not actually eaten but bitten bad enough that he had to go to hospital. While hes fine now he did come back with a shaven head, not something i knew to be a cure for rabies but i guess you learn something new every day.

    Walking distance to Meenakshi Temple

    Within walking distance to the Meenakshi Temple, this is a reasonably priced city business hotel. Strangely, hot water is only available 5-9am, the buffet breakfast is uninspiring, but the room was ok and bed comfy. The view from the roof top restaurant is very limited and the food only ok, so maybe better to spend the evening elsewhere.

    The location of the hotel was fantastic! The lobby was kitch but quite nice. Staff were freindly. However the room we had 313 was neat but old. With water damage on the walls, needing both hands to flush the toilet, sheets had stains and hair on them though they were crisp. Room was dark (were were facing a wall). We did see glimpses of other rooms and clearly were just happened to get the worst room in the hotel. Roof top terrace was lovely though the food was disappointing, cold and orders were wrong. Staff on the other hand were all friendly, accommodating, helpful. Ask to see several rooms. Breakfast is hearty and delicious though the restaurant has no natural light. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
