    Built by King Raja in 1010, Shree Brahadeeswar Temple is the most beautiful example of Chola architecture. So humongous is the temple the locals have lovingly nicknamed it “the big temple”. The tower over the sanctum sanctorum stands resolute, in all its majesty overlooking a magnificent monolithic sculpture of Nandi, Lord Shiva’s loyal steed, while age old frescos still line the insides of the temple.
