I am at the start of my photography career, and I am more into the travel sector and love taking pictures of temples, landmarks, village people, and anything which is related to travel or shows a different culture or tradition. I am soon heading to Chennai mainly to take shots of temples, and one temple I eagerly want to take pictures of is Ashtalakshmi Temple, which is located in Chennai. I will most probably spend the whole day at the temple or around it as I want to capture the temple at different times of the day. Coming this far I will also pay my respects by going inside and would like to get there early, what time does the temple open? I would also like to know some brief history about the temple as well and what it is famous for, as I find it necessary to learn about the religious places or other landmarks I take pictures of.
