|Description:||The Vaisnavite temple of Sri Rangam is one of the most extensive of India. It consists of more than 7 enclosures and 21 gopurams. In fact, it includes in its walls almost the whole of the town. Certain gopurams were erected by the Vijayanagara dynasty|
others were built later. The miniature buildings are greatly increased in number and the carvings begin to over-spill their settings. Near its base is situated the famous Court of Horses.
