After a day-long trip to the Palm Beach, Skagen and Grenen, we went to Råbjerg Mile. Yes, really we did.
Råbjerg Mile, the (mini) desert-like place of Denmark. It is actually a migrating set of sand dunes, that keeps moving about 15 metres per year, towards Kattegat. It is the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. It has a space of about 1000 m long and 1000 m wide dune of sand, where the highest point is approx. 40 m above sea level. I think this place is mesmerizing, and definitely a must-visit!
Guys, I tell you – Covid-19 made it tough for many of us, and I’m definitely not excluded 😉
After more than 2 years without travels, and 1,5 year without any trips in Denmark too, I must say that I was pretty much tired and badly wanted to do something! So a friend and I decided to go for a roadtrip in Northern Jutland for 2 days. She is actually from Copenhagen, so we took some days off during june, met in Aarhus for some brunch, enjoyed a lovely sunny day in Aarhus around the Marselisborg park and beach, spent some time at the Endless Bridge.
While staying in Tamil Nadu, we went on a roadtrip through the most of Tamil Nadu, to visit certain temples – among these where the Panchabootha Sthalas and Aarupadaiveedu.
From Mylapore – Chennai, we went directly to Trichy (Thiruchirapalli), which took about 6 hours by car. Here, we stayed at a hotel, as we were very tired. We stayed at PLA Residency. It is a 3 star hotel, but it was a very neat and a nice place, with a very good restaurant. We could actually see the Uchi Pillaiyar Temple from the hotel. We went to Uchi Pillaiyar Temple the next morning.
The temple is from the 7th century CE, dedicated to lord Ganesh, built on the Rockfort. The rock is 83 m tall. There are 2 temples built on the rock, while Uchi Pillaiyar Temple is on the top, while the other one – the Thayumanaswami Temple, is located close to the base. These 2 temples make the Rockfort Temples.
