I thought it appropriate to have my Last Dance (Photowalk) here in Chennai around Mylapore knowing that it’s a bustling city at sunrise. We were surprised as we turned down Chitrakulam West Street to see the Sri Audikesava Perumal Peylar Temple (RED X) holding its local Car Festival, pulling the Temple Car (Chariot / Cart).
The Temple Car was being decorated for a 7:15am Pooja followed by a 7:30am towing around the block. We waited through the hour of preparation capturing the daily lives of the locals, the way Street Photography should be.
The more prestigious Car Festival in Mylapore is this April 8th at the Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar Temple with 10s of 1000s of people in attendance. I headed for the roof last year to witness the event from up high.
