Kulamata Isani and Brahmacharini Lilashaki Devi go for a mini-yatra on San Marga. Isani is trying her hand with a new camera.
Here we are at the entrance road, with what tour guides will tell visitors are the famous native Hawaiian Guinea Jungle Fowl (otherwise known as wild chickens)

Coming down from Muruga Hill we proceed towards the Third World section.

A sacred Konrai, sacred to Siva, in bloom
Arriving at the outdoor sanctum where Gurudeva had his visions, we are met by Lord Ganesha.
Maha Ganapati, Jai!
Om, Om Muruga
Linga in the morning sun before puja
In the still bliss of the darshan after puja
Iraivan roof work
Young Crocodiles ready to drain the water off the roof for 1000 years.

This reminds of the fairy lands or where hobits might dwell.
We always feel so refreshed after our visit to San Marga.
Thank you Gurudeva, Bodhinatha and all the Matavasis for making a vision manifest.
