Completing the main structure of the gopurum

The erection of the main structure of the gopurum was accomplished in several stages: After opening the main wall of the house and inserting the wooden arch, the floor plate was placed. The wooden egg-like shape of the gopurum was then mounted in two pre-fabricated pieces followed by the erection of the outer wall of the gopurum and the altar niches on both sides. A boulder was taken from a river and cut into big slabs which will be integrated into the structure of the temple. Here are the latest images from the building site at the temple house.
