Thanjavur Big Temple

Posted by
Sam (Chennai, India) on 14 December 2010 in Architecture and Portfolio.

A view of Thanjavur Big temple from the eastern entrance. We see the 'Nandhi' - sacred Bull in the hall infront, the ' Kodimaram' - Flagmast and then the 'Gopuram' - main Temple Tower. The small temples are at the far end of the temple.

Thanks for your visit and your kind comments. I sincerely appreciate your visits :)
