Daily Photo • INDIA – TAMIL NADU – KANYAKUMARI

South of India, Tamil Nadu history dates back to several thousand years. This state is rich in monuments and temples that are ancient and each has its own story of religious, artistic and cultural accomplishment. It is a land where traditions and culture blend and continue to live. Month of April is full of ceremonies and that’s when I went to witness them. Three cities got on my list, Trichy, Madurai, and most south-est point – Kanyakumari. It is known for amazing sunsets and sunrises which draws western and local travelers. For local people it looks like has more meaning than just beauty of nature, every morning crowds come to worship sunrise while bathing in waters where Arabian Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Bay of Bengal meet.

Moved through Malaysia relatively quickly just visiting Kuala Lumpur, Melaka and Singapore on my way. I am sure I will be back again since there is a lot more to Malaysia than those places.

At dawn people gathering in park to watch sunset and nicely lit skyscrapers surrounding that area.
