Brihadeeshwara Temple

One of the best examples of temple architecture and also one of the tallest temples in the world, this dates back to the 11th Century. The temple was built in Thanjavir by the famous Chola King Chola Raja I and is completely in the Dravidian style of architecture. The awesome part is that the top portion of the temple is built in such a way that it never casts a shadow on the ground during noon. Each and every portion of the temple is widely encarved with motifs and patterns of gods and goddesses. The temple is surrounded with a high wall and the entrance has stone structures beautifully standing till date. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and a beautiful idol is placed in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple.

Tanjavur Brihadeeswara Temple is an engineering marvel built 1000 years ago.It's one of the most amazing buildings in India. It's 10 times taller than anything built before it, and not only is it huge, but it's made of granite, one of the hardest stones in the world. The most interesting part of the temple is shadow of the temple never falls down on noon. Architecture is a visual art and the buildings speak for themselves. - Julia Morgan
