Visited the beautiful temples

We went to Vellore on a day trip from Chennai. The city is warmer than Chennai and best to be visited in the cooler months. We visited several temples. First was the Jalakandeshwarar fort temple. This temple had no deity for several years. It's inside the Vellore fort which is filled with exemplary stone carvings all through. It's a must visit.

Easily accessible place

I had been to Vellore by road in the month of September. Vellore is easily accessible by all the three modes of transport ie road, rail and air. The nearest airport to Vellore is Bangalore which is at a distance of around 200 kilometers. The must-visit attractions in and around Vellore include Vellore fort, Vellore church, clock tower and the state government museum. Vellore fort is one of the oldest forts in India. The church of South India is around 150 years old. The heritage clock tower of Vellore was built in honour of King George V. This was dedicated to the 14 british soldiers who lost their lives in World War I. The state government museum is located within the Vellore fort and was opened in the year 1985. This museum is famous for old art objects and wood-carvings.
