    தமிழ்நாட்டின் பழங்காலத் திருக்கோயில் ஒவ்வொன்றும் சிற்பக் கலைக்கூடமாக திகழ்கிறது. ஸ்ரீரங்கம் ரங்கநாதர் திருக்கோயில் ஏழு சுற்றுகளைக் கொண்டது. மதுரை மீனாக்ஷி அம்மன் திருக்கோயிலில் இசை தூண்கள் சிறப்பாகும்.
    ராமேஸ்வரம் திருகோயில் பிரகாரம் பெரியதாகும். தஞ்சை பெரிய கோயில் கருவறையில் உள்ள பிரகதீஸ்வரர் திருமேனி மிகப்பெரியதாகும். திருஆனைக்கா கோயிலில் ஜம்புகேஸ்வரர் சன்னதியில் லிங்கத்தைச் சுற்றி எப்போதும் காவேரி நீர் இருக்கும்.

    Tamilnadu is known as STATE OF TEMPLES. There are many good old temples with great architect value. These old temples ( Madurai Meenakshi temple - Thanjai Prakatheeswar temple - Rameshwaram Siva Temple _ Tirunelveli Nellaiappar temple - Thiruchendur Murugas temple and his other abodes at Thiruparankunram , Pazhani, Thiruthani etc. and many more which can not be contained in this forum).
    All these temples have a pond or well or spring inside the temple.
    Very fine stone arts - the statue have life - The pillars have music - the corridors are cool. The Thanjavur Prakatheeswar temple Sivalingam is of great size made of a single stone. The stone placed over the lingam in the Karpagraha is a single stone. What machinary and method was used to place this great stone on the top can not be ascertained. The idol of Meenakshi temple is of Emerald green. Much more to discuss.

    The old Hindu temples are constructed in a vast area measuring in acres and the temple corridors have been provided with platforms to stay . This is mainly because the temples provide Emergency shelters to the subjects of the kingdom in case any natural calamities like flood, drought, earthquake etc.
