Incredibly Tall Temple Towers of India

A Gopuram or Gopura, is a monumental tower at the entrance of a temple, which is mainly found in southern part of the country. It serves as the gateway of the temple and also adds to the amazing architectural beauty of the shrine, touching the sky. It is not a matter of surprise to note that majority of the tallest temple towers are situated in the Land of temples, Tamil Nadu.
