The word 'Tanjore' conjures up a vision of a series of multi-coloured pictures of mighty rulers, who by their matchess Valour and benigh administration bought undying fame to South India that is Dakshinapatha. It has been the seat of power for scores of dynasties that ruled from time immemorial. Their religion city manifested in building temples offers such rich fare to eyes, that nothing stands equal to it in any tense of time. The Brihadeeswaralayam built by that immortal Rajaraja is a standing challenge that none could venture to enshrine a Sivalinga of that size and stature in a temple whose tower piercing into the blue sky showed the Patron's glory to the celestials and so was hailed as the Dakshina Meru. Its unique glory filled hundred of pages of temple history of our Punya Bharat.  

As we go round frond one end to another, we come across many type of imposing statues exuding; sculptural excellences to the astonishment of visitors as it were. These shrines are dedicated to Vinayaka, Subrahamanya, Parvathi and many other adorable personages, like Dwarapalakas and Jain saints along with a fair sprinkling of the emancipated demons and Nandi of the highlights of this superb shrine grand frescos in the inner courtyard deserve mention and indispensable attention since they are reminiscent of the splendid. Ajantha cave paintings of eternal reputation. Next in importance is the Mother's shrine.
