This book takes the reader on a journey inside the prominent Kapaleeswarar temple in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The first deeply researched and comprehensive tome on the renowned temple, it gives fascinating insights into its history and legend, and traces the time line of both Chennai and Mylapore. Rich in detail, it includes vivid descriptions of various sculptures, shrines, deities, vimanams, gopurams and rituals, including the annual festival Bromothsavam. The clear narrative takes the reader right to the heart of the temple and makes him or her part of the events taking place in its vicinity. The vibrant photographs were also taken by the author of the book.
