Nellayappar Temple - Part 2 (Tirunelveli - Tamil Nadu)

Here's the continuity of Nellaiyappar temple! This time, all about entrance. As I looked above, ignoring the impeccably crowded market area, there are those Chera wood works!!! Gorgeous panels depicting humans, solo or 2 in 2 rows with a row of decorative detailing atop them!!! Here are some of those!!!




Together with them, were a few erotic expressions!!




Just past these mind blowing sculptures, was a pillar! 
A huuuuuuge, taaaaallllll granite pillar almost 20 ft tall. That's not unusual!!! So, why am I talking about it. Its made of 1 solid, single piece of rock!!! More pics of the place coming up!!!

TO GET THERE:
Refer to my earlier post.
