Trichy and Thanjavur

Wednesday 3 February: Arrived at Tiruchirappalli or as it is more popularly known Trichy. Local city bus no. 1 shuttles between the bus stand and the two main sights Rock Fort Temple and Sri Rangam Temple, the largest in India.
Thursday 4: Thanjavur's new bus station is a couple of miles from the old bus stand, clock-tower, temple, palace and the old city - fortunately bendy-bus (44th mode of transport) no. v74 plys a route between the two. Ashoke Lodge, a real find with red and cream exterior and comfortable squeaky-clean rooms. Brihadishwara Temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site of carved honey-coloured sandstone. Nearby, the old Royal Palace has a great bell tower.
