    Vannakkam: The middle one is Thanjavur (Brihadeeswara) for sure. On the TN government site, you can take a virtual tour.

    I think the one on the right is the Sun temple at Konark (sp?) in Orissa. Not sure about the one on the left. I'm guessing they are all designated historical and archeological sites.

    Re: Question

    Namaskar Veena and Eastern Mind-ji,

    Apologies for jumping in and no disrespect intended to Eastern Mind's thoughts on the right-hand Mandir, but the one on the right looks to me to be Kandariya Mahadeva in Madhya Pradesh.

    I have no idea bout the one on the left, but to my admittedly highly unskilled eye, and from what little I have learned about Mandir structure, it appears to be southern architecture - the Sikhara over the Garba Griha appears as more rounded, where in much northern Mandir actchitecture the sikhara tends to be more of a truncated pyramid. That might be a good place to start looking to identify it.

    If you do identify it, please share.

    What has Learning profited a man, if it has not led him to worship the good feet of Him who is pure knowledge itself?
    They alone dispel the mind's distress, who take refuge at the feet of the incomparable one.
