As i walked past the majestic Chariot in Valluvar Kottam, i wondered if this was the vehicle of the Lords.. Did they have a million people to pull the chariot and how often did they ride in it?
Valluvar Kottam is a modern landmark in Chennai, that was built in honor of the classical Tamil poet- Saint Thiruvalluvar. Constructed in 1976, Valluvar kottam is made of long corridors, within which the 133 chapters of the Thirukkural have been inscribed. The place is built like a Temple chariot, which is a replica of the chariot in Thiruvarur temple.
Against the evening sun, and lovely breeze, the beautiful structure seemed to sway.... I wished i had carried my camera along, alas, i had to make do with my Blackberry 8520 phone!
