The magnificent Thanjavur Brihadeeswara temple is one of the biggest temples in South India, built by Chola emperor Raja Raja I (985-1013 AD). This is the chola dynasty's finest contribution to Dravidian art. The construction is unique : the pyramid-shaped vimanam (temple tower) rises from a square base and is topped by a huge monolithic cupola.
