This Town is famous for the Andaal Temple, a great devotee of Lord Vishnu, who dreams of marrying Lord Vishnu and marries Him . This place is supposed to be around the garden where Andaal as a baby was discovered by her father, another great devotee of Lord Vishnu. The temple also stands an important role with its Gopuram (Tower) being the emblem of the Tamilnadu State Govt.
This Town is located 115 kms to North West of Tirunelveli and about 75 kms South West of Madurai, Rajapalayam about 10 kms and Tenkasi about 85 kms all well connected by State Transport buses operated by Tamilnadu Government. 12661/62 Pothigai Express provides daily connection to Chennai from here

And the TN government has chosen the gopura(tower) of this temple as its logo/symbol. The reason why SVPR temple tower was a choice from thousands of temple towers in the state is quite interesting. This tower doesn't have any sculptures depicting Hindu Gods which in turn stood as a secular symbol :)

Nothing secular about it. Vaishnava temples(In TN Iyengar) temples usually don't have sculptures in the gopuram. Anyways minorities in TN are under 5%. Vaishnava temple architecture is minimalist compared to the Shivite ones in Tamil Nadu.

Well could be because major rulers of South were Shivaites and may be hence concentrated more on their architecture

I did not mean the secularism principles adopted by the constructors of the temple, but the logo selection committee was keen to choose such a symbol that can patronize the culture of TN and they ended up with 'Gopuram'. And in selecting gopurams they would have preferred SVPR whose temple tower is not having any scultptures, so that even Non-Hindus will not be hesitant to use the logo or keep the govt. documents bearing the logo.

However there is an other view that this temple tower is the west gopuram of Madurai Meenakshiamman temple. The artist who designed this monogram was Prof. R. Krishna Rao, who hails from Madurai. In 1948, he was appointed Head of the Department of Applied Arts in the Government School of Arts and Crafts in Madras, subsequently promoted as Vice-Principal and transferred to the Government School of Arts and Crafts in Kumbakonam. In 1968, he was appointed the Principal of the Government School of Arts and Crafts in Madras when the renowned artist K.C.S. Paniker retired from that post. In 1972, Krishna Rao joined Kalakshetra, Madras, as Director, Department of Art.It was Prof. R.Krishna Rao who conceived and designed the temple tower emblem of Madras State in 1949. The tower was built by Parakrama Pandiyan in 14CE AD. One can view very few sculptures on this tower.
