Meenakshi Temple, Madurai

The Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai is ancient, yet remains a significant place of worship for Hindus. The temple complex is surrounded by 14 ‘gopurams’, which are elaborately carved gateways. This image is of the East Tower or the gopuram on the eastern side. Like all other gopurams in the temple complex, this tower is also decorated with statues that depict tales from the Puranas.
