Beautiful photos!
I wonder how the temple will look like in 2050?
Just hope skyscrapers dont obstruct this beautiful view.

In an Affidavit of Thiruvannamalai Municipality of 30th June, 2005, it was stated that:

"In addition G.O. Ms. No.22 (MAWS) issued by the Government of Tamil Nadu on 30.01.1997 restricts the height of all buildings to be constructed within one kilometre of the temple wall to a height of 9 metres."

So thats a little encouraging!
