During this visit to the Virology Department in SVU University, Tirupati I was taken on memorable trips to a museum of Tamil Nadu architecture and arts on the East Coast Road.
I was also taken to the Satish Dhawan Space Centre, one of the two satellite launch centres in India (I hope I have identified this correctly).
Their are pictures of my first visit to the excellent Zoo, but I could find few pictures of University students or the town itself.
