Its very cold in England at the moment, temperatures reaching near -22c, all the lakes are frozen so no fishing for me, see http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8447023.stm .
As I’ve had some free time I have managed to process some more images from my India trip, I have posted a couple below.
Meenakshi Amman Temple – Madurai – Tamil Nadu
On our trip to India, we decided to make an unplanned visit to Tamil Nadu state.
Our south India driver took us to Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai. Madurai city is over 2500 years old, the present temple is believed to have been built in 1600. The detail of the carvings on the outside of the temple are amazing, when you get inside the temple you see some amazing stone work that dates back to 1559. I would definitely recommend visiting the temple with a guide to show you around the different shrines and explain little history about the place, its also nice to walk around and take it in at your own pace.
If you would like to know more information about the temple have a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meenakshi_Amman_temple
