Bird's Eye View & Archaeological View - A Visit to Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary & Gingee fort

17th June 2012 :: 

Another wonderful day of family outing. This time we headed to Vedanthangal Bird's Sanctuary and Gingee Fort !! 

Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary :

Went to Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary first , Even though the season for birds s during Nov-March, we just gone there for picnic. But it was really awesome . 

Quite amazed to see all the birds together there !!! Nice atmosphere and also we need to appreciate the efforts by the maintenance staffs. 

We can never see any such parks/public place as clean as this one. Hats off to them. Had a cool breeze there, nice climate amidst hot summer !!!   

Sharing few snaps taken @ Vedanthangal :

Eventhough its off season, we enjoyed our time.. still a lot of birds ! Cool Breeze in this hot summer !!! 

Birds taking rest !! Their sounds also pleasant to hear !!! 

Beautiful tree in front of the Vednthangal entrance

Gingee (Senjee) Fort :

Then we went to Gingee fort in afternoon. Unfortunately since the time crossed 3pm when we reach Gingee, we were not allowed to go to the top of the fort. But there were so many forts, prisons, and ancient places within fort itself. 

The Archaeology at those days were really awesome !! Again hats off to the Maintenance staffs for making this place clean !!

Its a must see place in chennai.. It will take atleast a day to cover the whole of Gingee Fort including the nearby temples. 

I felt like, Its a Mixture of Mamallapuran & Thanjore temples !!! Really enjoyed to the core, but we were short of time and missed many things there :( Worth to be chosen for one day picnic spot.

Few Snaps Taken @ Gingee Fort :
