Tamil Nadu Temple Run: Narthamalai

Set among a beautiful landscape of rock outcroppings jutting out of farmland, the Vijayalaya Cholishwara Temple is, despite it’s name, a 9th c Pallava temple. The temple and surrounding side shrines are built on one of the rock outcroppings. Unfortunately we reached the site in the late evening, so got just a few minutes of daylight to explore.

For an introduction to my Tamil Nadu Temple Run trip, visit the first (Chidambaram) post.
