The Chariot at Valluar Kottam

Today I was called to Valluvar Kottam to meet some friends. Was not prepared for the what presented itself. A huge chariot made apparently of stone inside a monument dedicate to Saint Poet Tiruvalluar. Googled more abut it and and found this here. What a shame that I was not aware of this monument even after 10 years in Chennai!

Could not take many pics as was running out of time, a few for your viewing. The Chariot is 40 mts in height!
