Thanjavur, India

Thanjavur, formerly anglicized Tanjore, is a city in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The then municipality Thanjavur had about 223,000 inhabitants at the 2011 census. It is located in the delta of the Kaveri River, around 320 kilometers south of Chennai. From the 9th to the 11th centuries, Thanjavur was the capital of the Chola Empire, the most important medieval kingdom in southern India. Later, the Nayaks (1535–1673) and the Marathas (1674–1855) ruled Thanjavur. Today the city is the administrative seat of the Thanjavur district and the location of the Tamil University. The main attraction of Thanjavur is the monumental Brihadishvara Temple, which was built in 1010 at the height of the power of the Chola dynasty. - Wikipedia
