This guide Book on the three great Chola temples, built between the eleventh and twelfth centuries in Thanjavur, Gangaikondacholapuram and Darasuram, along The Magnificent Cauvery delta in Tamil Nadu, is part of the World Heritage Series published by the Archaeological Survey of India.
All three temples are dedicated to Siva; and each represents the culmination of architectural and aesthetic achievements that came to form the Dravida style. From the imposing strength and exquisite paintings of 'Thanjavur's Brihadisvara, built by the great ruler and conqueror Rajaraja I, to the lavishly sculpted complex at Ciangaikondacholapuram, built by Rajaraja's equally valiant successor, Rajendra I, and the somewhat more delicately crafted Airavatesvara temple at Darasuram-these temples offer a tour of an ancient and splendid history.
This volume also provides An Introduction to the History and Architecture of those times; it is illustrated with over 80 evocative photographs as well as detailed site plans and sketches; and its exhaustive bibliography will aid those who wish to delve deeper into the vast Chola empire that produced these three outstanding edifices.
