As part of travel photography, here our author has made photo story comprising beautiful architectural photographs of Thanjavur temple.

Brihadeshwara temple is enough itself to explain the beauty of Thanjavur. The structure of this temple is strongly made up of old stones. Lots of paintings on the wall of big temple explain many things about the kingdom of Raja chola. A day is not enough to feel the beauty.


India is a virtuous country.

People of various religions live here. When we come to Hindu religion, people believe in God and they are lost in the devotion to God. They often go to temple for worship. Whenever I plan to visit temple or spend some times in temple, the first thought that comes in my mind is the old structure of temples made by big-2 rocks. Earlier Rajas used to make all the temples like this.

Tamil Nadu is a state in South India that has a large number of temples. The old structure of temple is made of rocks that attracts people along it. When we come to Tamil Nadu, we have lots of options to explore temples. Nowadays we have less time and people want to utrilise those time for enjoyment. So, Brihadishvara temple is a perfect place to explore and know about the culture of this temple.

An imposing entrance that is exposing the beauty of big temple which is situated at last but seems to have a three dimension appearance.

A day is really not enough to explore the beauty of this temple. I finished my journey of this chapter by taking a wonderful frame of lady seated on the corridor and looking straight at the temple which was adding the beauty. It was a new and wonderful experience.
