Gopura Darsanam

Gopuram and Dwajasthambham
Gopuram and Dwajasthambham

‘Gopura darisanam kodi punyam’, goes the saying in Tamil. Gopuram is the tower at the entrance of a south Indian Hindu temple. For those who can not go to the temple for some reason, even viewing the tower is considered to be a blessing. The kodimaram or Dwaja stambham is the other tall structure.

Viewing both through my lens was indeed a blessing at the Prasanna Venkatesa Perumal temple in Saidapet. The bird in flight added to the dynamism of the image.
