VP’s Kin Visit Thanjavur Big Temple

Dheepa was here on a visit to the 1004-year-old Big temple with her mother Usha, and children


South Indian women who believe in Indian culture will not visit Sabarimala if they are in their menstruating age, said Ms.Dheepa, daughter of the Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu, here on Sunday.

Dheepa was here on a visit to the 1004-year-old Big temple with her mother Usha, and children. She told presspersons after darshan, that those who agitate at Sabarimala were doing it for various reasons. “I am a South Indian woman who respects our culture,” she said.

“There are temples which are thousands of years old and conserved by us in India. Instead of looking at them, people are going abroad to see other things,” Dheepa said.

The Vice President’s family spent more than three hours going around the temple and they were also shown some rare paintings which are said to be more than 1000 years old and belong to the Chola period.
