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.
