Tanjore temple



Art and Science in one place.....Tanjore Shiva temple. More popular by the name Big Temple of Tanjore.

A master piece of a Chola King who ruled the eastern part of Tamilnadu with Tanjore as the capital.

The entire district of Tamjore has no mountains or surface rocks. But still, this huge temple with Giant Shiva lingam was erected with rocks transported from far away place .....that too when no modern machines were not available .

Another highlight of the architecture is the Huge Nandi(bull, the vehicle of God Shiva) standing in from of the sanctum sanctorum.

It's beyond commentary....you have to see it to believe .
