Our office shares a wall with the Adyar Ayyappan Temple. This quaint temple made of granite is undergoing a massive renovation now. They had been sand blasting the granite walls for over a week and the sound was grating. Dust was all over the place and we had to keep our corridor windows all shuttered up.
When we looked out the other day, when all suddenly fell silent, we saw the holy premises covered up in traditional palm leaf shades. All the patch and paint work will happen behind covers, until the grand day for the festivities arrives.
That's a view from our office terrace. You see the already renovated portion of the temple as well as the ICICI Towers.
