(voice by Joey https://readloud.net/english/american/3-male-voice-eric.html) Temples in India are not only a place for Spiritual development but they were also for social purposes like feeding the poor during Drought,Floods and for providing shelter during natural calamities.Not only this, these temples were architectural marvels but they were also built with advanced instruments of which we know not much, but these temples were also designed with astronomy in mind. Thus we have Sun's rays falling at the feet of the Idol on a particular time of the day, five times a day, where shadow doesn't fall despite in the Sun…. I have written many articles on this. Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple, Madurai,Tamil Nadu is dedicated to Devi as Meenakshi and Her Consort,Siva as Somasundara. This temple has many unique features including the fact that the One thousand pillared hall's replica is found in Central America. The temple has four towers, Gopurams. They are atleast 45 metres in height. Yet, you can see the Sunrise and Sunset from the Centre of the temple.The reason is that it is built at an angle of 23 and a half degrees coinciding with the axis of earth. Other temples are built without an angle with respect to rising and setting of the Earth's Axis. This temple is built very straight to north and south. ‘It was just before 500 years that Galileo discovered that the Earth's rotational axis is tilted at an angle of 23.5 degree to the ecliptic plane. Calculating this tilt, 1000 years before the architectures made the N-E-W-S directions exactly with 180 degree and constructed these gopurams.
