About Raya Gopuram
Located within the Meenakshi Temple premises, Raya Gopuram was constructed during the time of Raya clan. This is the only pillar which is half-constructed but still, Raya Gopuram is the most beautiful one among all the other Gopurams. It is the most unique architectural feature of the Meenakshi Temple.
This particular gopuram stands on the West direction of the Meenakshi Temple and from one view, the appearance of the temple becomes captivating due to its specific carvings and half-construction. This is a major and majestic attraction for the tourists visiting the Meenakshi temple.
