As travelers, we visited Thanjavur many times. Every time when we visit the temple our attention is focused on one thing or the other. Its beauty is catching up our heart and soul. We felt that all the visitors would also experience the same feelings.
They may need a guide through which they can enjoy the cultural richness and elegancy of the temple.
We thought it is our prime duty to share the valid, interesting and authentic details that we gathered from the original source materials like epigraphs, numismatics, art and architectural details etc., to the public those who wish to get more information. This book is just the translation of the Tamil work by us titled ''Kalathal Karayatha Kaviyam Rajarajeswaram''. We feel this book will adorn your home library. We feel that this second edition with added information on festivals, celebrations definately benefit the readers.
We thank each and everyone who supported us for this endeavour.
