Tanjore - Sri Kothandaperumal Temple

The Nayakas of Tanjore and Mathura had an insatiable thirst for sipping the Lord's thirtha, be it of Siva or Vishnu, or deity of any denomination for that matter. Besides building gigantic temples in several places away from capital and endowing them magnificently together with visiting them more often than not, they built marvellous shrines in their forts for their private worship. Their unswerving dedication displayed through unbroken rigidity in visiting and adoring the deities is worthy of emulation. Either in times of crisis, or peace, they were worshipping ardently and taking decisions only after ritualistic worship. In this, they set inimitable standards for the whole theistic world to admire and adore. The dictum - "Yadharaja thadhapraja - as is the king so are the subjects", perhaps lived a full life then. The Kodandaperumal temple lying in the Tanjore fort vindicates the truth of the dictum. It is of modest dimensions, but liberally endowed in all aspects. The archamurti s icon in standing posture is soul-lifting. As it is opened for public now, all pilgrims including locals invariably visit and worship this Lord. Many legends are woven round this august icon and all bring out the Moolavar's illimitable compassion for the royal family and the public.

It lies in the fort of Tanjore of Tamilnadu and accessible by auto or cycle rickshaw from bus-stand.
