Last 3 days I was in Trichy visiting Srirangam, Rock fort and Samayapuram Temples. Going around Trichy, I liked how clean the roads were, the temples were super clean, and how there were even functional clean toilets in many places (like midway during the climb up the rock fort that even had running water!). Maybe, Greater Chennai Corporation officials can take classes from their counterparts and the people of Chennai can learn from their friends and relatives in Trichy.

Shopping is part of every pilgrimage trip. Every temple in India has numerous shops and hawkers selling everything imaginable that is sure to tempt the devotee to spend their money on. Check out the pictures of the few shops I saw in Srirangam Temple.
