Heritage week special – Vandalised murals of Suseendram
As you climb up the dark and dingy stairs up the Gopura, disturbing the bats with a flashlight, you chance upon some of the most beautiful murals..
Unfortunately I discover that many people have been here before me and they chose to highlight their presence by vandalising these paintings.
