TANJORE

During the Maratha rule that ensued the Vijayanagara Naicks, the region made further conquests in realms of fine arts. Thus, Chola culture when blended harmoniously with Maratha and Andhra cultures it became instrumental in raising the dignity of tike capital and integrity of people. By reason of this especial blend, it is hailed as a cradle of multiplicity of diverse, yet distinct cultures. 

Tanjore thus, enjoyed prosperity through diversity and solidarity amidst multiplicity of cultures and creeds that culminated in gaining a pride of place in the history of India, Undoubtedly, it carved out an enviable niche in the temple that the history of India is.  Alas! its glory departed with the passage of time, leaving its peerless splendour in ruins, but one feels, rightly too that it can recreate its glorious past, if only one begins colloquy with them through the immortal works and inscriptions aided and abetted by specs sans coloured glasses.
