India Timelapse

This is a fascinating time lapse of the sights of Tamil Nadu in India.  The area (which is the size of Greece) is home to almost seventy million people and has been the home of the Tamil civilization for three and a half thousand years. The capital, Chennai, is perhaps more familiar to some by its old name - Madras.  It is home to many enormous Hindu temples built in the dravidian style.

The timelapse is the work of Visualmondo and is accompanied by a sound track is accompanied by perhaps the most different version of Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire (by Ramesh Weeratunga) that you will ever hear.  Altogether it makes for intriguing viewing.
