Description

Tanjore is not going to leave you disappointed once you are willing to explore the city with cycle rides. It is also the place for getting to know what cultural and heritage walk is. Heritage walks have been designed so you can sense the ethos of local culture and practices. Capital of Chola Empire for 4 centuries i.e. 10th to 14th century, Tanjore definitely deserves a half day visit. The king, Raja Chola(985 to 1016 ) had built the greatest temple the Brahadeeswar among all other 74 temples made by his Chola empire with a tower higher than 200 ft (62 meters) and a block of granite weighted 80 tons on its dome. After the temple, we’ll get amused by Tanjore’s ancient bronze art sculpture. Next follows a visit to the Bronze sculpture museum having avid bronze sculptures. If you love art and sculpture and specifically pilgrimage or temple sculpture and are curious about its history, Tanjore is a must go place for you. Cholas made significant relevance & contribution in fields like art and architecture. If you have heard about the famous style of painting i.e. Thanjavur style it was developed by Serfoji, the Maharaja of Thanjavur in 19th century. This art includes both painted and sculpted style.
