We have been to Brihadeshwara temple in Thanjavur many times. But every time, we have been to Thanjavur, somehow we used to miss another great temple at Gangaikonda Cholapuram. This time we did not want to miss this.
On the way back from Thanjavur, we stopped over at this great temple. It was around noon and the sky was clear with few clouds. The mighty tower seemed to be reaching the sky.
A detailed post on Thanjavur will follow. Till then, if you are interested to know more about Chola temples you may click on this link.
