TIRUKKOILUR

THE TEMPLE

As many expansion and renovation activities were undertaken by mighty theistic rulers and great philanthropists its size, walls, towers, mandapas etc. are gigantic and impressive in proportions. It has a massively built high compound wall pierced by entrances and high towers on three sides. The tower opposite the Rajagopuram measures 192 feet in height and it is dominating the landscape, and is visible to people off some 15 kms in distance. 

The intricate sculptural adornment of the towers speak volumes of the builders  patronage and workers superior craftsmanship. The image of Trivikramaswami in the standing posture with right leg raised to measuring the sky feasts the eyes and fills the souls of the visitors. It size and pose are quite unique. On either side there are many images of illustrious personages all but in act of praying.
