In Childhood, Family, Village

You would think that our family temple is in our village. After all, that makes logical sense, right?


It’s in a small little village that is 50 kms away from our own.  Yesterday, we traveled as a family to Muthialamman Temple in Mandagapattu, a quaint little village near Pondicherry. 

Why would our family temple be so far away? Apparently, it was selected by one of our fore fathers who most likely played a part in it’s construction. And it has been passed on to us over generations.
