Music to me is a soul search to inner being travelling across different emotions of love, devotion and peace. This post was triggered by a visit to a place outskirts of Chennai dedicated to Lord Sundareswarar located in Kovur near Kundrathur. The temple dates back to 7th century evident by the construction, sculptures and inscriptions. The magnitude and beauty of the temple gopuram says it all. What has this temple got to do with music must be the question in your mind now. This temple has been instrumental in bringing out 5 beautiful compositions from the great music composer Saint Tygaraja.
Our experience travelling to Thiruvalangadu, a serene Shiva temple located in the Thiruvallur to Thiruttani route. Thiruvalangadu is a beautiful village retaining its old charm with tiled houses and is located quite off the busy Chennai city yet easily reachable for a calm peaceful spiritual journey.
