Only pools of water remain in tank of Sri Kapali Temple

Summer is still with us and the tank of Sri Kapali Temple in Mylapore is almost bone dry.

Save for small swathes of water around the central mantap and a few old sculptures that lie in the tank, the rest of this huge tank is a scene of parched land – soil that has baked in the hot sun every day and split into small earthen plates.

A few birds make do of the water pools in the morning or late evening.
