Madurai Meenakshi Temple

Meenakshi temple complex is within a high-walled structure, at the central part of which are the two sanctums for Meenakshi and Sundareshwara, surrounded by a large number of smaller shrines and majestic pillared halls. Particularly their soaring towers rise from solid granite bases, and are enclosed with stucco figures of dieties, legendary animals and monsters painted in vibrant colors.
