If you have been following my A to Z challenge, I would have wrote about places in India which are famous hill stations, forts, archaeologically best, forests etc but I was worried that I haven’t wrote about my state TamilNadu. You might think that why I didnt take TamilNadu for the alphabet “T”. It would have been very vast to cover. So I thought to highlight locations around my native where I studied (Thanjavur) and  where I spent my holidays in my grandpa’s and aunt’s home (Trichy).

Trichy or Tiruchirapalli and Thanjavur are famous for lot of hindu temples, archaeological  and ancient monuments.
