Kanniamman Temple, Kovalam

Kanniamman Temple, Kovalam

During one of my visits to Kovalam Beach, near Chennai, I got to capture this temple tower from the parking lot. The temple called as Kanniamman Kovil is built close to the shore, though the temple tower looks fading, I find it beautiful along the pretty blue sky. I was there on a Sunday evening and it was crowded and people where coming in and out making it look like an exhibition with few merry go around kind of things. For the people around this area, Kovalam beach is an entertainment place to spend their Sunday evenings.

The intricate work and figurines of various gods and lions entail painstaking labour. Shows amazing diligence of the artists.

I generally miss noticing the statues on the Gopuram as they are so high. But nowadays, I make it a point to zoom and click the details. Did not notice this Temple in Kovalam, yet. Will try to visit there.

Love the details plus the shades of aqua, creams and tans that highlight the details.
