Thirukkadaiyur & Darasuram

Travel 300 km down the coast from Chennai. You reach the replica of a temple that was once swallowed by the sea. Thirukkadaiyur holds a bustling Shiva temple specialising in serving husbands who turn 60 or 70 or 80 years of age. It’s that specific. Travel the same 300 km south slightly interior, you reach the storehouse of Chola art and architecture, Darasuram. For all its grand past as a sandstone masterpiece, no one visits the World Heritage Site. Whatever their age.
