Temples in Tamilnadu

There are over 30,000 Temples in Tamilnadu. "Don't live in a place where there is no temple" is the motto of the people of Tamil Nadu.Therefore, you cannot find a hamlet, a village, a town or a city here without a temple. Each place and Tamilnadu temples has its own presiding deities.Almost all the Tamilnadu temples have similar features - the gopuram or the Portal Tower from all four directions, the vimanam or the Tower over the sanctum sanctorum,spacious halls and corridors. Wherever and whenever there are festivals in the places of worship, people throng without any distinction of their native religion or faith - a unique feature in Tamil Nadu manifesting the religious tolerance of the Tamils.
