Annamalaiyar Temple – Sixth Prakaram – Ammaniammal Gopuram

Annamalaiyar Temple – Sixth Prakaram – Ammaniammal Gopuram
The northern Gopura known as the Ammani Amman Gopura  has nine storeys and is 171 feet in height. The base of this Gopura is believed to be later than that of the Raja Gopura to the east. 




It is the spire that is attributed to Ammani Amman and the date is approximately around 1810 A.D. There is a mutt in her name on northern Orravadai Street and a statue of her installed nearby. Her Samadhi is located next to the Isanya Mutt in another part of town.
