See video

Age-old Trichinopoly in the Madras residency, India in 1945. Also seen its fortress, club lifting exercise, laundry at the Chauvery river and finally what the city looks like today. A viewer writes: the places look like Somarasampettai and Uyyakondan Thirumalai .The background at 2.00 - 2.03 and 2.12- 2.21 looks like the Ujjeava nathar Temple, especially with the Brahmin priest walking in the foreground. The bit at 3.33 - 4.02 looks like the Washermen ghat ( Vannan padithurai) near´╗┐ the present day Court complex, where the first Garland for Kuzhumayee is offered.
