Sacred dance was performed by temple dancers or devadasis, women who dedicated their lives to sacred movement. These women lived in the temple towns of the Cholas, and were considered married to the temple deity. Under Rajaraja I, the Bhrihadishvara temple in Thanjavur (Tanjore) was believed to have employed up to four hundred temple dancers.
