Road starts from Chennai east coast towards south of Indian tip Kanyakumari is called as ECR means east coast road.. I love to travel on this road as I feel something close to my heart is there in this highway. There might a kingdom some centuries back and ruins of them are still there as hidden objects.
Without any further delay we are going to travel in my imaginary world..
One fine morning I was jogging on akkarai beach and glancing the to and fro pendulum waves.. instantaneously noticed a stone which was half submerged with sea sand and foamy ocean water. It looked very weird and shapeless with traces of algae. I couldn’t control my excitement “ what the hell is it” and why no one noticed till now. Many instant thoughts passed over my mind and finally I made myself to go and see what’s there in the stone.
Oh my goodness it should be some stone inscription which is in non readable format. I took a snap of it in my phone and then I continued my jogging. Something strike on my mind to find what is there in the inscription. My bike raced to home and learned that it is a vatteluttu.
Vatteluttu is a script followed during 6AD and needs translation to convert it into readable Tamil letters. Inscription says about a temple built by Pallavas and it’s devotion towards lord Vishnu. Much more details which needs to translated by a professional translator. This will be food for my brain for another 3 weeks.
