The tallest is the western tower, with seven stories and a height of 72 feet. The temple has numerous shrines, with those of Kasi Viswanathar, Visalakshi and Navakanniyar being the most prominent.

  • Grand temple of Kasi Viswanathar. But shocking to find encroachment of houses into the front gopuram. A heritage temple's gopuram encroached is a sad site.
