The hidden heaven

Like a heaven I feel,
That make everything to heal,
Sight through my eyes,
Every regret that dies,
Makes my heart fly,
Like a bird in the sky.
In my dreams… The vision I see

A ride back to the ancient history of Tamil Architecture – Brihadeeshwarar Temple – Tanjore, Tamilnadu

This time my travel isn’t to hills or beaches. This can be something I need to witness the reality with my own eyes that has been arranged since I was doing my graduation. Yes, now its the time to ride through one of the old Tamil Architecture that still left in this world. The temple is part of the UNESCO World Heritage site known as the “Great Living Chola Temples”.

Yes, it’s Brihadeeswara temple located in Tanjore, Tamilnadu. This temple is also called as Peruvudaiyar Kovil or Rajarajeswaram. The temple speaks about one of the huge and mysterious architectural mastery constructed during the Chola Era constructed by Raja Raja Chola I, the greatest king of the Chola dynasty between  AD 985 and 1014.

TTL25847

In this post I would like the readers to let know about the Tamil history than my riding experience.

Temple Highlights:

  • The Temple measuring more than 200 feet which remains home to one of the largest Shiva Lingas of the country.
  • A majestic Nandhi (bull) at the entrance, measuring a gigantic 20 feet high and 12 feet in wide stands guard over the temple. This is the second largest Nandhi statue in India and is carved from a single stone.

The Largest Mystery:

The mystery behind the construction of the temple was using up of 130,000 tons of granite, the fact is that there were no granite quarry for around 100 km. The another main mystery is Vimana Temple (Main Temple) has a lotus shaped tomb at the of the tower which weights more than 80 tonns the wonder is that how they managed hoist that large rock on the top of the tower without any modern heavy cranes available on those times. (WOW ! Seems like the workers really had some big days).

Transportation Facilities:

The temple is located at around 1 km from Old bus stand or 5 km from the new bus stand. It is very easy to locate the temple and people who are visiting by train can reach at Tanjore railway station which is also not so far away, less than 2 km distance from the big temple.

Timings:

6.00 am. – 12.30 Noon, 4.00 pm. – 8.30 pm.

Things to do:

There are several things that one can do in Tanjore rather only visiting the Big temple. And this is a vague shedule of things that i followed while i’m visiting the place.

  • I have reached Tanjore by morning 8.00am, freshened up myself and had some tasty hot true tamil breakfast and entered the temple by 10.00am, and went through a few great time capturing photos and observing the temple until i felt like to giveup with the burning sun at 12.30pm. 
  • Tanjore Market, One can find more interesting things in the Tanjore road side market with lot of interesting statues and handmade toys, pictures of the temple and books, clothes and stuffs. (well, indeed in spite of the fact that i am not a kid some handmade toys really pulled in me, so i brought one for me) 
  • Going by Tanjore one ought to not miss to have their lunch at Hotel Vasantha Bhavan or Sree Aariya Bhavan serving lip smacking hot authentic tamil nourishments.
  • With in 1km away from the big temple you can visit to find some ruins of the fort, which now serves as a host for Museums and Theatre. (you can reach there by the help of share autos or auto rikshaws with the fare no more than ₹50 to ₹60 bucks, only if you are good in bargaining).
  • The Tanjore Museum is famous for Paintings, Manuscripts, History and ruined diety statues. Which remains opened all day from 9am to 6pm with the entrance fees of 50 and for cameras they charge additional 30.
  • Do not miss to watch the highlight History of Tanjore, Tamil culture and the Great kings who ruled it, at the theatre, which is previewd as a hourly basis from 10.30am to 4.30pm. (Shhh… I actually felt exhausted after my ride and slept for an hour at the theatre, because of very good air conditioned and a silent room ambience.)
  • Moreover, if you done with every thing and still you have some time within the evening, never miss the evening pooja at the Big temple and investing some good time for you or with your books in the breezy grassy lawn. (I bet you will adore the evening vibe with sunset and mellow slokams from the temple music systems).

I will share a link below to study more about the temple http://www.findmytemple.com/en/sivan-temple/t156-tanjore-big-temple

And my dream of visiting to this oldest temple has been fulfilled. I would certainly recommend this place to people who are hunger seeking or interested for these oldest Architectures.

Dedication to my all time fellow travel companion. Yes, it’s to my own Avenger.

Thanking you for taking me miles away through various destinations,
the obstacles we faced,
the paths we find,
new places we discovered,
where you’re my only one to trust,
through my crappy emotions you have seen and been,
and never disappointed me in any circumstances and never let me down.

You made me to understand almost different things,
carved me with confidence,
saving me from the mechanical people and world.
Because of you I never settled down,
never limited my boundaries.

You’re not just an engine with two wheels,
for the one who really understands your worth.
You’re the one to ride my soul.

Still miles to ride…Paths to find…Dare to discover...💕🖤

And what is there in Eastern Ghats? Kalrayan Hills – Tamilnadu

Long after my couple of trips to Kodaikanal and Gandikota, it was Diwali, to say it was a boring week off to remain at home where nothing else to do other than to gaze at the boring programs on tv. All of a sudden I got a beep on my mobile phone. (Ignored it. considering because it might be the same apathetic Diwali wishes). After few minutes the same companion who texted me showed up to my house (So active lying in supine position, do not you check your message which I have sent you) come let’s arrange for a trip to somewhere I can’t be ideal be here at home.

Appears just like the time is right for a quick ride and I have as of now in mind of exploring the Eastern Ghats the Kalrayan Hills which was around 350kms away from Chennai (well it’s not a visiting or traveler place) a little hilly zone surrounded by villages at the slope extend of Yercaud, Yelagiri, Kollihills.

The next day evening by 3 pm as we arranged we begun our ride and planned to reach the destination by next day morning. we reached to Attur close Salem District by 11pm and rested ourself in a lodge. The lodge manager was friendly enough to talk with us and I enquired him around the places and the nearby places that we are to cover by the next day. He recommended a couple of places moreover he guided us the route to Kalrayan Forest, especially saying “that’s not a traveler spot but you’ll just like the place”.

We took rest that night and proceeded our ride early by next day morning. Since it was November end the climate appears to be dead freezing at early morning with both fog and drizzles. After a warm glass of coffee we rode to Kalrayan hills (and this time permitted my companion to ride my bike, and you’ll be able to figure why?) we managed to reach the place before dawn that as well in a happy area close a lake underneath the Tremendous Kalrayan hill in front (will share you the pic at the end of the reading).

The dawn appears to be the foremost wonderful thing that made to feel just like the worth of all our endeavors to reach the place. Where the Golden Ray’s touches the water and a few nearby Fisher men’s rows their watercraft within the long distance appears something like a natural portrays. We chose not to spend much energy on wandering. so we sat or lied down the green ground for hours overlooking the time looking into the wonderful visual dawn (unfortunately it does not last long until our stomachs mumbled for breakfast). After a few fast snaps at the area we begun looking for the breakfast, town people groups shooked their finger towards a little hut at the hillslope. We hurried towards the hut (before out large intestine eats out the small intestine). That was the most pleasant vibe that we may ever get for our breakfast, which was arranged by an old granny with her elder girl and a little FM radio player plays all the tune hits that stabilizes the mood. We didn’t have much persistence to feel the place due to starvation, both had around 3 to 4 dosas with the tri-color chutneys and finished the yummy breakfast with a warm glass of coffee.

Still, we have more than 4 to 5 hours of time to take off as planned, in the meantime we need to spend our time within the hill, so we started to seek destinations through the assistance of the local people we overseen to discover few spots like a dead cliff, see point and a little waterflowing the edges and a small shady nap under the trees.

And we at that point finished our trip after a fresh shower within the water stream. As specified prior Kalrayan was not a traveler place or get-away spot. It’s a little wonderful village along the slopes of Kalrayan Forest, one who likes to spend a day out with not more exercises, a break from the city life will be a magnificent place for them. Once more it’s a quick trip to keep in mind and one of the best-unexplored area.

Wander through unexplored part Ooty – The queen of hills (Nilgris, Tamilnadu)

And it was the end of March 2018. I was about to leave the existing workplace for a new opportunity to work with something different to my life in a new place, new life leaving my comfort zone. I planned a trip to some random places, decided to take some people who willing to accompany me. At the last moment, one peeped up his head to join with me. And here we plan to ride to Kodaikanal from Chennai. Then unfortunately why and how I still don’t remember we changed the plan to Nilgris. And our ride began…

Starting early morning around 4.45am from Chennai. After several breaks, we managed to reach Ooty downhill by 5.30pm or 6.00pm with some freaky snaps on the way as we were obsessed with the evening sunlight and cool climate.

At last, we reached the top of the hill by evening 8.30pm. But then we remembered we didn’t book a room yet. Luckily we noticed a viewpoint hut built in a sloping down valley. We rushed to that place to enquire the availability of the room. The room management guy was so patience enough to show us around 10 to 15 small huts and ready to offer a bigger one in lesser price (still wondering how ? why ?) and I consoled myself thinking maybe my friend looked like a beggar to him wearing shades at night with some crazy head scarf on his head, so he allowed to stay for a day.

Someway or the other we started to seek for some untouched places in Ooty hill ranges rather rushing always into the boring boat ride and some say the one can enjoy the beauty of Ooty in the Suicide spot (don’t get too excited, you will realize that’s the suicide point maybe only after a few days after the visit).

(Some destinations and experience that we faced during the ride are not to be shared due to some TN govt. security reasons because we later realized that those places were abandoned or restricted from public access, luckily we were allowed in to experience those gracious views) maybe I could share it when we meet in the future. (wink)

I would say that people who visited Ooty would have never seen the real beauty of the Queen. Overall its a trip to remember.

And here are some of the memories framed by me and my photographer friend.

Breathe…

breathe

Breathe, when every thing falls apart…
Breathe, when the world breaks you down…
Breathe, when soul ooze with happiness…
Breathe, you’ve got as of now passed this before…
Breathe, let go of everything that needs to go…
Breathe, the proof that you are still alive…

A glimpse of Agali – Western Ghats, Kerala

And it was a long weekend again. No wonder when I am free with no works these long weekends always comes in the month end and I wanted to jump out from the four blocks around me, thinking where to go. Suddenly I came to remember a few months back I was traveling to Palakkad through Attapadi and I came across a place called “AGALI”. Ahhh… now I got an idea where to spend the weekend. It was about a 150km ride from Tiruppur, Tamilnadu, the place can be reached via Coimbatore. Luckily I was blessed with an awesome climate that can be rephrased as a perfect climate to have a perfect ride. I reached the place Agali Early morning by 5.45am or 6.00am and as usual a Chai that makes a day a good start. While having my Chai had to engage with some local people to seek little help for finding some locations and they were very kind and helpful guiding the way like I should not miss myself through the wrong way. At last, I reached a viewpoint which was simply amazingly beautiful to see the view through the morning glaring mists and sunbeams finding its way to ground through the clouds. And those little spots headed me over to a long river with childless in water rushed straight away from the mountains. One can’t simply stand still watching that obviously I too jumped into it and had a fresh bath which made my day. And finally, the day started falling and drizzling I had no other option drove my bike straight away to my hometown. But for a quick time to spend with nature, the place is absolutely an awesome spot. Where I learnt happiness can be found nowhere but here at the moment you spend at little things that make you happy.

He gives his heart a shake,
And laughs until his belly aches.
The only other sound’s the break,
Of distant trees and birds awake.

Provence on the Bay of Bengal – (Pondicherry)

Pondicherry, an incredible place to experience the blend of French and Indian architecture and culture. The place which is almost 150 to 200km away from Chennai. If you are a biker or want to have a road trip prefer early morning I assure that you that it becomes one of your memorable travel.

Besides sightseeing, you don’t need to worry about what to do in Pondicherry, where one can afford rooms from low budget to rich five-star hotel rooms.

even when you are not perfect for few.
i never miss to see you…
your every imperfection of beams is worldview.
i never miss to see you…
even if some fails to realize you.
i never miss to see you…
but you never knew.
even when the world freeze to ice.
i will be there for your every rise.

Slip into Silent Valley – Kerala

When there’s a long end of the week ahead and still do not know where to go. It gets to be a challenge to choosing a travel goal, at last 5 minutes of fast arrange appears working than weeks of plans doesn’t workout, and I finished up here into a place called Attapadi on the Silent Valley Hills (A reserved forest range). As per the title the place is really a once in a while favored goal by travelers which lies within the Western Ghats between Palakkad and Coimbatore. In spite of the fact that I fair favored a ride to Palakkad I utilized this Ghats way rather preferring Highway. But on the off chance that one likes to arrange for an experience at this place like Trekking etc. they have an alternative to select trekking interior the thick woodland of silent valley hills which ought to be booked some time recently a month or two. (Refer other blogging sites for further details with respect to Silent Valley). In spite of the fact that, the road ways are not that idealize for the ride but I guarantee you may conclusion up with a few great view points. Indeed at a few points I utilized to require a little rest and have a chill shower to form myself new. At early morning the place is covered with fog which now and then make troublesome to see the road ahead. (As due to my mobile charge ran out I couldn’t able to take sufficient snaps). The slopes make way to Palakkad crossing Mukkali, Agali and finishing up at Mannarkad town down the other end of the hill. Overall to be known as distant the place is really a best place for Experience and Excite seekers.

To ride in the curvy roads,
with the majestic hills that confides,
to cuddle you from all sides..
leaving the path to let you ride..
to find yourself in to the lost alley of Silent Valley..
