This 1000 year old Brahadiswara Temple is a masterpiece in Dravidian Architecture. This Video shows this symphony in stones from unusual angles. Cholans ruled for close to 1500 years and remain as the one of the remarkable dynasties in Asia - for their great excellence in Temple architecture, arts and literature.
This World Heritage UNESCO site - Big Temple bears the hallmark of 3 different dynasties - Chola, Nayaks and Marathas. You will see in this video - the magnificent grand stone edifice of the RajaRaja Chola, with additions of a monolithic Nandhi statue and Subramanya temple added by the Nayaks and Marathas.
