  1. That is quite an intriguing sign. Although, I know Mani Shankar Devay Shop very well. One of the oldest saree shops in Tamil Nadu. This is the place where my grandmother and my mother bought their wedding sarees and recently for my sister’s wedding too. Very famous for their 9 yard silks and loyal customer :)

    P.S : The owner speaks very good English :) What is the symbol though ? Looks like the tamil alphabet ‘shai”!

    Ram : Oh thanks for more info about the shop. Answer below ..

  2. “மேற்படி” is the word attached to that symbol.
