The Meenakshi Amman temple complex in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, is an awe-inspiring sight to behold, and one of the finest examples of a south Indian Hindu temple. Soaring to over 50 meters (150 feet) high, the 14 gateway towers, or gopurams, are stunningly decorated with thousands of full color carvings. We also manage to get a look inside the temple, where there is a real elephant!
