The Ceiling of Kapaleeswarar Temple

In February I was traveling with a friend through Chennai. We were hot and tired and wanted to rest somewhere beautiful. We came across the Kapaleeswarar temple with its long open-air structure and freshly painted ceiling of colorful mandalas. We rested, we watched, and we took in the sights and sounds of a calmer, quieter, cleaner part of Chennai.
