Talk: Daily Life in Madras 1000 years ago – August 23, 2017

Talk by Pradeep Chakravarthy
On Aug. 23, 2017. At 6.30 p.m.

Organised by INTACH and Alliance Francaise.

Temples in Chennai today are primarily places of worship. This was not their only role 1000 years ago. They were centres not only of religion but also of local administration and served as locations for cultural activities and for social gatherings.
Temple inscriptions are the sources of information on the little-known secular functions of the institutions. The talk will create an image of daily of a thousand years ago based on the reading of these inscriptions.

Venue: Alliance Francaise Edouard Michelin Auditorium, 24, College Road, Opp. Good Shepherd School, Nungambakkam. Chennai 6
