Ten years after the 2004 tsunami at Mahabalipuram

It was kind of eerie standing on the beach at Mahabalipuram/ Mamallapuram (East coast -India) ten years to the day after the 2004 tsunami (26th December).

Today, this little seaside town is thriving and its laid back atmosphere reminded me of Koh-Samui, Thailand, before it became a popular tourist resort.

Every day, women of each household make kolam designs on the pavement outside the home for prosperity and good luck.

Mahabalipuram is also a famous national heritage site – the rock monuments of ‘Arjuna’s Penance'”are spectacular.

Definitely a place I will visit again and hopefully get to share it with a new group — its great place for yoga and meditation!
