Very impressive Gopuram, Rajesh!
The surrounding hills make the Temple all the more special.
Very nice presentation and commentary, with pertinent details including the meaning of 'koodu' in 'Koodumalai'!
Have a Happy Week!
Peace :)

Very nice series of photos. I looked up the route from city to city on the map. I see it is equally distant on two sides from the ocean(s). I'm guessing it is very dry and hot around there.
