Now and then... senji

A family trip to Thiruvannamalai and on the way back we were able to halt at Senji fort. Didnt spend beyond an hour or so because of the timing, but this place is as neat as Hampi is except it lacks the "backpacker" atmos that hampi so beautifully built up!






While we are on the topic of Hampi, my mom told me that saint Ramana of the thiruvannamalai fame had in his writings mentioned Hampi. According to that book, Hampi is actually designed along the lines of the Sri chakra but with a slight fault. The sage Vidyaranya who desigend it belongs to the line of adi shankarar. Ramana also mentions that if ever a city is once again built along the sri chakra's line ( flawlessly ) by a descendant of the Adi shankarar, and if there is a country with that city as the capital, they will be the unrivalled rulers of the world! Interesting!!!
