Tanjore or Thanjavur.. . Yes it was really confusing for me when I was riding cycle in Tamil Nadu. Every place has two names old name which was known to me as it was part of my school history study and new names which was as per their place history. . I reached this place little early with intension to visit famous temple of Tanjore and known paintings. I had only one choice temple or painting as both are at different paces. I had limited time with me but finally I putting half a days extra stay
Why to Visit Temples ? (Scientific Reason)
"Tanjore Brihadeeswarar Temple is also known as The Periya Koil or 'Big Temple'. Showcasing pure Dravidian architecture, the temple was built in the Chola capital of Tanjavur under the aegis of the Chola king Rajaraja Chola in 1010 A.D. Designed by Sama Varma, the architecture of Brihadeeswara temple is unique in that the temple casts no shadows on the ground at noon during any time of the year."
