Welcome to Tanjore

Tanjore is one of the important centers of South Indian religion, art and architecture, housing the Great Chola Empire temples and home to the native beautiful Tanjore paintings. Today Thanjavur is another fast paced, modern Indian town with the past still very much present. Every day thousands of people worship at the Cholas grand Brihadishwara Temple, and the city's spectacular royal palace preserves memories of this place’s splendid past
