A few months back, the director went on a tour of magnificent temples in Tamil Nadu. In a video shared by the director, he is seen exploring several temples in the state such as the Brihadeeswara Temple in Thanjavur, Rameshwaram, and Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple in Srirangam, among others. He is also seen boating in Thoothukudi and indulging in local snacks in Madurai. The director ends the video with a beautiful image of his family.
Sharing the video, SS Rajamouli said, “Wanted to do a road trip in central Tamil Nadu for a long time. Thanks to my daughter who wanted to visit temples, we embarked upon it. Had been to Srirangam, Darasuram, Brihadeeswarar Koil [temple], Rameshwaram, Kanadukathan, Thoothukudi and Madurai in the last week of June. Could only touch the tip of the iceberg in the given few days. Exquisite architecture, amazing engineering and deep spiritual thought of Pandyas, Chozhas. Nayakkars and many other rulers was truly mesmerising.”
