A Sunrise Moment from the Airavateswara Temple, Darasuram

It was a pleasant morning and I was standing inside the Airavateswara Temple in Darasuram. The Airavateswara temple is part of the Great Living Chola Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is situated on the way from Thanjavur to Kumbakonam. This temple was built by Rajaraja Chola II in the 12th century.

I had just finished one round of this intricately carved temple when I saw this fantastic sunrise moment from the main entrance door of the temple. The clouds just seemed to add to the magic.
