Incredible India Tour (27 - 29 Mac 2009)

27 & 28 Mac 2009
Firstly...i am sorry for taking some time to update the pics and stories on my India tour. I was sick and still recovering. This India trip was a promise i made to my mom and sis long time ago. Finally, i had the time & cash to take them on the tour. On 27th Mac, we took MH180 (at 9.35pm local time) from KLIA to Chennai (Madras). Arrived Chennai airpot at 10.45pm (M'sian time maybe around 12.30 midnight). Man....i finally had the taste of 'busy India'. Thank God Izzo warned me earlier about the noise factor...OMG...u gotta be there to understand wat i mean.
We were staying at my sister's friend's place in Ambattur. Ambattur is a major municipality in Thiruvallur district in the state of Tamil Nadu. It is an industrial area north-west of Chennai. Though considered a part of Chennai for all practical purposes, Ambattur technically belongs to the Tiruvallur district. Closer to Anna Nagar, Ambattur is a fast developing residential localé of Chennai. Saturday was a relaxing day for us. Since we slept only at the wee was a much needed rest day. During the day, we also planned for the trip and discussed with the tour operator.

The pilgrimage trip (read : visiting temples overall) started early 5 am. We stopped for breakfast along the way and i found this ambassador car. The Hindustan Ambassador is a car manufactured by Hindustan Motors of India. It has been in production since 1957 and is based on the Morris Oxford model first made by the Morris Motor Company at Cowley, Oxford in the UK.The Amby, as it is affectionately called is considered the definitive Indian car.
Our first stop was at at MelMaruvathur Adhiparasakthi Temple.
The journey continues...
