A gopuram is almost always four-sided, tapering towards the top. Its base sits on doors which provide entry to the temple premises. They are richly decorated, depicting themes from Hindu mythology, often centering the resident deity. Lord Murugan is usually depicted as having two wives whereas I came across other versions on the 'net that claim that he is a bachelor.
