The thousand pillar mandap (or atleast thats what it is called!)


The thousand pillar mandap (or atleast thats what it is called!)

I went to Trichy (Tamil Nadu, India) recently and visited the Sri Ranganathar Temple. It was so huge and we got lost! :p
There was this beautiful place called the “Aiyam Kaal Mandapam'” (Thousand Pillared Hall).
Here is a snap shot of the place.

P.S.: Later I came to know that it does not actually have 1000 pillars. It has a little less than thousand and people back then decided to plant coconut trees around it to arrive at the grand total of 1000. 😐
