No walking

The Kapaleeshwarar temple tank is a very soothing sight in the early light of day. A sight that's tempting enough to draw the passer-by to get close to the waters and rest a while. But it is also considered a holy tank and access is therefore restricted at points other than the temple's entrance.

An unlocked gate was tempting a few tourists to try and get in, but they were observed very soon - and the gate promptly locked up!

Fortunately I gained entry from this very gate as there was some aaratu that day and in the after noon there was a large number of Police bringing in inflattable boats.

@PNS: That's nice. I guess they open this gate once in a while, by prior request.
