Devi (Chennai, India) on 2 March 2017 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The Temple complex built more than 1000 years back was buried under sand, till it was excavated in 1950.
The ruined temples look lovely..shall share with you some images I shot here.
This in the Pudukkottai district and named Moovar Koil ( Temple belonging to the three ) . It is very well maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India

It is a great thing that they have survived to the present day asti..Ne help us to see past time. It is important, because otherwise you can not create a new one.
