..Location: Lakshmi Narsimha temple, Mangalgiri, Andhra Pradesh , India..About 200 years back Raja Vasireddy Venkatadri Naidu who ruled from Amaravati as his capital constructed a stupendous gopuram (tower) on the eastern gate of the Lakshmi Narasimhaswamy. It is one of the highest gopurams in South India and only one of its type in this part of India. It is 153ft. in height and 49 feet wide with 11 storeys, and gates facing east and west. This great and imposing tower dwarfs the central shrine. The devoted patience of thousands of skilled craftsmen and the labour of many more apprentices which had gone into this great structure is a testimony to the religious fervour which characterized the builder. After constructing the gopuram, it was leaning towards one direction. The Kancheepuram Architects suggested to dig a tank opposite to the tower. After digging the tank, it is said that, the tower became straight. .. #wanderingmonk #samsara #shivaratri #shiva #bholenath #mahadev #wanderer #wanderlust #travelgram #traveltheworld #write #writer #poem #writersofinstagram #writersofig #poetsofinstagram #poetsofig #spilledink #creativewriting #spiritualwarrior #onelove #faith #spiritual #writetoinspire #writetotravel
