Temple highlights in Trichy

Cake and pastries for breakfast Today should be a day of visiting the temple highlights in Trichy. But I woke up this morning after a terrible night’s sleep; I had hung up my mosquito net so I couldn’t use the ventilator, which resulted in hours of terrible sweating. Not so far from where I am […]
