TANJORE

In the south, generally, Gopurams or towers at the entrances to the four sides of the outer walls or Prakarams are of great height; the central tower or Vimanam over the sanctum sanctorum is usually over- shadowed by the height of the Gopuram. But at Tanjorethe main temple rises above the Gopuram as is seen in the temples of Orissa. Within twelve years the temple was completed and King Raja Raja 1. Did the Kumbhabhishekam (installation ceremony) on the 20th day of the 26th year (1011 A.D.).

The King took his bath in the tank and was cured of his black leprosy and shone in lustre like the moon. He made very liberal
grants together with his elder sister and queens and son and others. Raja Raja I and his son Rajendra Chola I was great
conquerors and their territory extended from Ganges to Ceylon and parts of Malaya Archipelago.
