Chipping Away at Iraivan

At Iraivan today the entire six-man silpi team is working together. Here Karuppiah works on the hand railing.

It is made of 38 stones, and it's quite a feat to fit them so perfectly.

Chitaiya is also on the same hand rail.

Fitting each piece individually.

So there are no visible seams.

Lokesh works on the flooring tiles.

In fact, the floor is coming along quickly at this point.

Here you can see the floor on the left of the sanctum.

Andiappan works on the rose-granite tiles.

On the way to take these photos, the photographer stumbles on this Oncidium orchid in full blooom…

And the exotic Bat's Ears, which are just opening.
