Madurai, City of Temples

Madurai, the City of Temples in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Its skyline is dominated by the 14 colorful gopurams (gateway towers) of Meenakshi Amman Temple. Covered in bright carvings of Hindu gods, the Dravidian-style temple is a major pilgrimage site. I took this from the roof of one of the antique stores on the main square surrounding the temples. They allow you on the roof in the hope that you will buy some of their goods.
