TIRUVANNAMALAI

SRI RAMANASHRAM

The peace in this place is something else, yet it is so full of people!
If you go to this Ashram don't forget to climb Arunachala, the beautiful holy mountain, it is easy to see from all around Tiruvannamalai area.

Climbing up to Skanashram halfway up the mountain was for me a wonderful experience, very peaceful and also the trees, plants, flowers, birds and butterflies, the peace was out of this world.

Sadhu's in Tiruvannamalai

A Sadhu walking along the Chengham Road. I took this photo during the Deepam Festival week when thousands of people arrive in Tiruvannamalai to celebrate, they walk the road around the Holy Mountain, Arunachalla. It was a wonderful time to take part in such a festival.

Collecting sticks

I remember we were on this road driving in a rickshaw and we had to pass the ox and cart, the men made a big effort to go to the side of the road, it was a wonderful photo opportunity which I did not want to refuse. Some of these oxes have the horns painted blue, I was told that this was to be able to recognise them as being from a certain farmer.

I HAVE MANY MORE PHOTOS OF TIRUVANNAMALAI IN MY TRAVELOGUES, WELCOME TO VISIT.
