You are welcomed by a gopuram which towers over 236 feet above the landscape and in front of which, the town buses reverentially pass with a bow. (It may not seem too towering in the image but it really is. The vertical image I took is too distorted to put in here.)
The gopurams are studded with lots of stories from the Hindu mythology.
You go in awestruck of the architecture, just to find more and more of these inside. The golden gopuram is situated right over the sanctum sanctorum.
And your prayers can be kept here under lock and key. Just like love in Paris.
