Kapaleeshwara temple trail
This trail is a walk around the Kapaleeshwara in Mylapore. As Indian temples go, this one is not very ancient. But it is a very popular temple in Chennai and is a great place to observe everyday rituals from close quarters. As you walk around this colourful temple, you will discover that every sight you behold has a story to tell. Join us as we uncover these stories; stories of Hindu Gods and demons, of common customs and age-old traditions, and stories of local life. Ever wondered why there are so many Gods in India? Or what the stars have to do with your future? We’ll talk about all this and more on this trail.
