Photographer's Note

After a brief detour to my hometown I return to photos from far away long ago.

This is the view from the Rockfort, the main landmark of Tiruchirappalli, a medium size city in Tamil Nadu state, taken during a journey I made through southern India in 1988.

The Rockfort stands on top of a roughly 90 meter high rock in the centre of the city. It was originally built during the Pallava dynasty during the 6th century but was reconstructed by later rulers. Several small temples are found in caves on the way to the top.

I scanned this from a Kodachrome slide.

Here is a larger version.
