Pictures took by myself, Temple city of TN, Palani
There is no big Gopurams like the Chola architecture in Nayaks architecture. The main Raja gopuram is not built, only the foundation is visible. Many of the small gopurams found in this temple were built by Dhandayuthapani swamy Devasthanam at later period.
Certain parts of Planai is as old as 3rd century AD, and as new as 17th Century AD

On a different note:
This thread always gives me the chills

But also a heavy heart, 40,000 such magnificent heritage sites were lost in the reign of Aurangayzeb alone,
Oh what we have lost
अयोध्या तो सिर्फ़ झांकी है,
अभी काशी-मथुरा बाक़ी है।
