13 kms. from Kanyakumari, the temple of Suchindram is famous for its musical pillars and huge Hanuman statue. The Thanumalayan temple is dedicated to the Lords Siva, Vishnu and Brahma and is a repository of art treasures. This temple, at Suchindram, is noted for its 'musical' columns and its impressive 3 metre tall statue of Hanuman. Musical pillars and huge Hanuman Statue are the proof of the artistic skill of the time. Two chief attractions are the gigantic Hanuman and Vainayaki (Female Vinayaka) relief carving. Thanumalayan temple is dedicated to a deity who is the representation of the combined forces of Siva, Vishnu and Brahma. The temple has a beautiful gopuram and inscriptions of the 9th century are found in this temple. Lord Siva started from this place to wed Kanyakumari Amman, but returned when he heard the cockcrow.

Beautiful pastel colours and some fine watery reflections. The light airy feel is overshadowed a little by the heavy frame - a simple white border might give a more pleasing effect. Still a n excellent shot nonetheless. Best regards, Roberto
