The Nawab Miriammen Temple in 6th Street, photographed in 2007. The trees that surround the Gopuran are a welcome buffer between the temple and arid wasteland that was once the southern residential area of the Asiatic Bazaar section of Marabastad. The high steel palisade security fence in front of the temple is an indicator of how circumstances have changed.
