|North Tower - Mottai Gopuram|
All the towers are adorned with beautiful sculptures that depict stories from puranas (legand/mythology). However, this tower is almost bare and the locals call this as மொட்டை கோபுரம் (bare tower!?). The legend says that all the towers in this temple was built overnight by the bhootahganaas (Lord Shiva's heavenly followers). Sunrise occurred while building the north tower, so it was left incomplete!
