CHIDAMBARAM

CHIDAMBARAM is one of the ancient towns of Tamil Nadu. Tillai is another name for the town.

It lies on the banks of a branch of the river Kaveri.

In this town is the famous temple of Nataraja.

The word Nataraja means dancing king. God Siva stands in a dancing posture in that temple.

The temple buildings cover a large area.

Among the building are five great halls or sabhas and many shrines. One of the halls has a thousand pillars.

The Ganesh idol in this temple is one of the largest in the country.

The temple buildings are of stone, although for several miles around there are no rocks.
