Dear friends, In the year 1994, (even before I got married), me along with my parents, brother and maternal grandparents have been on a trip to temples in and around Kumbakonam. Especially the Navagraha Kshethras. I had a travelogue written at that time. But now I have translated and edited. While reading that travelogue I travelled back to that time. We went to lots of temples and temples, (kindling the archeologist in me). During that time the chord line was in existence and we had to go to Kumbakonam only in Cholan express as it was the straight train from Chennai Egmore to Kumbakonam.
