The word 'Tanjore' conjures up a vision of a series of multicolored pictures of mighty rulers, who by their matchless Valour and benign administration brought undying fame to South India that is Dakshinapatha. It has been the seat of power for scores of dynasties that ruled it from time immemorial. It was a capital city with a difference. Situated in a fertile delta and surrounded by rich alluvial soil - the gift of ever-smiling Cauvery, it is rightly called the rice-bowl of the South by reason of producing paddy twice a year in bumper crops to feeding sumptuously millions of hungry mouths, with a great variety of grains and pulses, besides several kinds of luscious fruits. 

It has had a splendid past. In and around it were born many an illustrious god-man, who heightened the glory of our sacred Ind, by establishing and propagating the diverse creeds of our all- adorable Hindu Dharma. It was the centre of enlightening forums, famous for holding a several remarkable mellifluent concerts and literary contests. Ascended here upon, several reputed saint composer-singers, who poured down their souls in melodious strains, the divine sports of our gods and goddesses. And god gifted poets and writers who gave literary banquets to both royalty and commonalty under the munificent patronage of enlightened rulers.
