Raya Gopuram, Melkote
I took it just ‘another story’ associated to the place. The pillars do look incomplete with no tower built over it. It looks as if the work was abandoned in a hurry. It is also known as Gopalraya entrance leading to the hill. Climbing up the structure I found boulders scattered. Wasn’t this the same place where Aishwaray Rai, Miss World 1994 danced for the movie Guru? Amazing what lighting effects could do to a simple place full of boulders like this!
Do watch this song sequence “barso re”, to see the place ‘Raya Gopuram’ where the sequence was shot.
