The Island of Seringham is located in the southern state of Tamil Nadu and the temple complex, which is now known as Sri Ranganathaswamy, dates to the ninth century. It is, in fact, the largest Hindu temple in the world.
Over and above simply recording the fine architectural details of the great buildings, Thomas brings the scene to life through his inclusion of the two monumental temple chariots, known as rathas, as well as the camels, the cattle, the birds and the people.
