I spent three days in Kumbakonam and Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu , roaming around the markets .It was a more of a personal trip, mainly a pilgrimage. I am not too much of a religious person but I love visiting old temples, especially those that are in small towns and villages.
On the last day however, I more time roaming around the markets in Kumbakonam, known for brass and copper ware, vessels and lamps. And I found this lovely lady.
The brass ware here is very famous and most of these shops have their own little manufacturing units. I can lose myself for hours here.
