DAY 7

SIVA GANGA GARDEN

During the period of Raja Raja Chola, this place was used to be the residential place for the dance artists, which was 1000 years ago. It was called as the Thali Cherry Pandir residence. This place is very well suited for children as this place has got lots of tress to play hide and seek, if they still remember rather than roaming with electronic gadgets. This place’s maintenance is not very good, only an average care is taken to properly maintain this garden. There is also a train inside the garden, for the children to play and relish the moments after they grow, it might sound over whelming but that’s the truth which sounds stupid.
