We reached Tanjore by 7 o’clock in the morning of 26th Jan. We got out of the train and were greeted with this wonderful view.
Went to the hotel (The Oriental Towers)
Its a real good hotel for a town like Tanjore. Eight storey, I guess.
Well maintained, has a swimming pool and if you get a room like mine (room no. 715) then you can have beautiful view of the temple top.
Some better Tanjore pics are available here.
Then we went to the Tanjore Sivagangai Park. Not much to see there, but if you are going with kids, it’s definitely a great place. There is a mini zoo with peacocks (and Peahens), foxes, deers, Guinea pigs, rabbits, pigeons, parrot, oh and lots of “love birds”... 🙂
park pics are available here.
On our way back to the hotel, we had lunch(very good lunch) at the marriage hall and slept blissfully at the hotel for four hours before going to the marriage hall for the reception.
