photoblog image Gopuram

Gopuram

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.

Probably HDR? The colours are excellent.
About the Lord - let's say he was a bachelor before he got the two wives smile
I see that one guy on the corner (small figure with a dog) is naked and appear the only one on the gopuram in that state.
wow! amazing details !!!
