Left Madurai in heavy rain, the first of our trip, our driver said it was a cyclone and was going to last around three days. It got wetter the nearer the coast we got, one good point was it kept other people indoors and for a change we were on a good quality road all the way to Trichy (Tiruchirappalli) where we visited the Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple which was being renovated and covered in bamboo scaffolding and green netting.
On the road to Trichy, very wet today.

We ended up with wet, cold and muddy feet, we were glad we had taken a waterproof jacket! I will add the Tanjore photos another day
