Cuddalore , Tamil Nadu

Cuddalore is a city in Tamil Nadu about 25 km from Pondicherry which has an Old town and a New town separated by the Gedilam River. On top of this, it lies on the coast of the Bay of Baengal. Yes it sounds familiar and yes, India is filled with some of the most beautiful coastal towns that can ever be found. They are part of a fascinating Peninsula and also relics of the time when these coasts were constantly ravaged by the foreign forces. Cuddalore, today a rapidly developing Industrial town is one of the throwbacks of the colonial era, just like so many places in India. Yet even after so many foreign invasions, what really stands out in this city are the temples. With a range of Shiva and Vaishnava temples it is like many places in South India, so full of religious and cultural heritage that it cannot be swept under a foreign doormat. "Padaleeshwarar" is a Saiva (Shiva) hindu temple in "Thiruppadirippuliyur", Thiruvadhigai Veerattaneswarar Temple and the Thirunavalur Shiva temple are 15 km from Cuddalore and the temple of Sri Natarajan is one of the most famous temples in this region. These are of course a few and there are many more which dot the enture kandscape. There is no escaping the temples in this land. Cuddalore's beaches are becoming a tourist destination. Silver Beach is the second longest beach in Tamil Nadu on the Coromandel Coast. The old town is a must see as it has some of themost breathtaking Persian architecture and the biggest mosques in India. The Fort St Davis is another attraction that is worth taking a peek into in Cuddalore.
