Dear Sri Ram — went through very captivating and informative pictures on Thiruvottiyur Temple Complex . They collectively inform us about the cultural ,religious and political cum administratuve imprints of so many dynasties of past who ruled over northern TN. But one picture astonished me very much. The revealing figure of Tantric Yogic Couple and that too in Thyagaraja complex ! I am not an expert connossiuer of art history. However I had a feeling that Tantra Cult was more flourishing in Kerala , some parts of Karnataka, Mdhyapradesh , Orissa and certainly in ancient Bengal. This sculpture appeared quite intriguing revelation to me. Thanks for dissiminating knowledge. ……. nkm
