    1. Actually these gopurams are best left unpainted.They always look best in their original state without a coat of paint.

    1. No one attempts to build gopurams of such magnitude and splendor these days. But if they really want they can build such structures.

  13. They all stood majestic!! The first three gopurams were truly impressive. Nice to see the clear image on the Srivillputtur temple tower that replaces the government emblem of Tamil Nadu
