Skywatch – The Big Temple or the Brihadeshwara Temple at Thanjavur
After five years, the roads are taking me on the Chola Trail again. The Great Living Chola temples which are part of the World UNESCO site beckon me . I was not just awestruck but humbled and speechless when I saw Raja Raja Chola’s Big Temple built in the 10th century. Words defy me as I stood near the Big or the Brihadeshwara temple at Thanjavur whose Vimana is a staggering 216 feet tall, taller than the Gopuram that stands at the entrance.
