Chennai City from Chennai, India

The two entrances (access points) to Tanjore Peruvudaiyarkovil, Keralaanthagan Gopuram 9five storied) and Rajarajan Gopuram (three storied), are falling on the same axis. This picture captures the Rajarajan Gopuram, a granite structure showing mediaeval chola architecture. Thank you for the brilliant composition showing the warm granite color perfectly mingles with blue sky. Regards.
