The Big Temple

Came across this wonderful site -
dedicated to the Thanjavur Big Temple a.k.a Brahadeeswara Temple. Kudos to the team (Ponniyin Selvan Varalatru Peravai - Ponniyin Selvan Historical Society) behind this site.

"From the epigraphical evidence it is known about King Rajaraja-I started building this temple on his 19th year and completed on 275th day of his 25th year. It took just 6 years to complete this work on 1010 A.D."
