Home Vacation 2007

Home leave is a time that we look forward to every year. In 2007, we managed to schedule it during the Christmas eve.. We had a wonderful Christmas and a good start to the new Year.

We took some time to visit my Grandfather, back in my mothers town in Mailaduthurai, TamilNadu.

We also visited the beautiful church in Velankani. This Church has a history of many miracles. Miri had a good hair cut also done here.There is busy market street behind the church ( as u can see in the below photo) which leads to a beach.

The Tanjore Temple (Thanjavur Periya Kovil) with its marvelous architecture was another interesting stop in our TamilNadu trip. There is a large bull at the entrance of this temple. It is believed that this stone Bull is growing every year and when it touches the Roof , the world would end! Amazing fact about this temple is that, Gopuram does not have shadow at any time of the day!

Time has again come when we are counting down the days to the next home leave.. We are again looking forward to have some nice time with our family and friends back in India.
