Sangeetaa Sthalam-s - 4 - Heritage Landmarks in Music

Tyagaraja sanctified Bunder Street by his stay and it is also said that he sang Devagandhari raga extensively during his tenure in Sundaresa Mudaliar's house. Leaving the enchanting strains of that musical memory, if we come back to Flower Bazar police station, we see King George V looking rather forlorn and sad over what is now a parking lot. As a statue, he is quite intact and well preserved, though the hand that holds the orb is often used by political parties for tying banners and flags. Today passers-by hardly spare a glance at this statue, but there was a short period when George added colour to Carnatic music.
