Sri Ranga Ranga Ranga Gopuram, Fig.2

SRI RANGA RANGA RANGA GOPURAM is one of the most favourite entrance to the temple for most of them and Adiyen is one among them. This prakara is known as Aalinaadaan Thiruchuttru or Aalinaadaan thiruveedhi (street) and is the 4th praakaaraa.

Now, we will be entering this temple through this entrance. As you can see, the name of this gopuram itself is Sri Ranga gopuram, which has the name of the main deity Lord Ranganatha of this temple, embedded in it.
