Flushing the princely donation of INR 200.- or US$ 4.60 into the Tiruchendur Murugan Temple's coffers, catching the immediate attention of the lazy, lolling temple priests and getting our private grand tour into the cave-like intestines of the mighty Tiruchendur Murugan Temple which presides over a spectacular sandy beach: (i) loads of detailed explanations about the subleties of Hinduism (our favourite animals: the green-faced, multi-armed Kali for Konni and the trunk-nosed, flap-eared Ganesh for Matt), all this in high-speed Indian English, (ii) many special darshans (opportunities to eyeball one of the stone-carved gods from up close), and (iii) the complete hocus-pocus of seemingly endless blessings with flower garlands around our necks, white and red dabs of paint onto our foreheads and a jazzy solo performance from one of the temple trumpeters.
