White landscape

Madurai

No snow here at 45C in this quarry of the Elephant-Rock visible from Madurai at 12 km.

From this quarry, the famous hard granite stone is exported all over the world. In this stone you find an incredible variety of colors from white like marble to rose up to black.

Here you see a man running after this bullock-cart with a stone to block it from going down hill.

It's really like an oven here full of white dust, only local people can cope with this.
Feel the heat !
