This is a clip of the Sri Meenakshi Temple complex in the city of Madurai. The tall structures are called Gopurams. They are the outermost gate to the Temple Complex.
This clip is of the nightly ceremony where the Lord Shiva is taken from his sanctum and moved to spend the night with his consort Privati.
As you drive thru the Southern Indian countryside you see where rice farmers cover the road with rice. When the cars and trucks drive over the rice they thrash rice.
