Photowalk #113: Madapakkam

June 29, 2017

The Chennai Corporation has grown. Chennai has swallowed up nearby villages/districts into the metropolitian area. This photowalk goes to one of the villages that have grown to become a part of the city. Madapakkam in East Tambaram is well known for its greeneries and the famous centuries old Dhenupureeswarar temple. This temple is an Ancient Guru Stalam and one of a number of sites that have been conserved and restored under the auspices of the Archaeological Survey of India.

This time the idea is to meet up at Rajakilpakkam Junction Bus Stop off Velachery Tambaram Main Road (Park your vehicles here)

and then photowalking around the overgrown village visiting Madapakkam Lake and reach Dhenupureeswarar temple where we’ll end the walk.

So there you go.
