Thanjavur Tour Packages

Rice bowl of Tamil Nadu and the cultural capital of the country in the 18th century, Thanjavur rose to prominence during the Chola reign. Temple architecture was redefined during their rule, and a new paradigm of Dravidian architecture was set. The 11th century Big Temple or the Brihadeeswara Temple in the heart of the town stands testimony to such a tradition. The structure is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is unparalleled in terms of grandeur, scale and detailing. Conceived during the heyday of Chola rule by the great Rajaraja Chola I, the Brihadeeswara temple for centuries has attracted fascinated artists, curious historians, sociologists, and travelers who delight in its wealth of sculptures, beautiful calligraphy, frescoes, and over a hundred inscriptions on the walls. This artistic tradition was righteously carried forward by the Nayak and Maratha kings, and one can get a glimpse of it in monuments such as Serfoji Mahal Library and Tanjore Palace to name a few.

  • Shopping in Thanjavur

    Shopping in Thanjavur

    Thanjavur is an interesting destination to shop especially if you are an art collector. Everything you find at the handicraft market here is one-off and unique to this part of South India. They range from the famous âThanjavur dancing dollâ, Tanjore paintings to Tanjore art plates. You can find an array of Tanjore paintings and other objet dâ art at the Tanjore Palace museum shop. Here old and new artworks are sold, and you can conveniently use your credit card. At the Phoompuhar Art Gallery, both connoisseurs and collectors can revel in its range of artistic bronze statues, Tanjore paintings (a style of painting traditionally practiced in Tanjore depicting scenes from the Hindu mythology), and artistic plates. The genuineness of the artifacts here makes it very popular with foreign tourists.

    A haven for craft lovers, Thanjavur owes much of its fame to the exquisite artwork and bronzes made by dexterous artisans. Browse the craft market some more, and you will find interesting weaves in silk, ethnic jewelry, filigree, woodwork, pottery, handloom products, and paintings. Must put up a bargain, for the prices quoted to tourists are on the higher side.

    Silk weaving is a prominent traditional craft in the temple town, and many artists are engaged in this profession. When in Thanjavur, donât forget to pick up a typical silk sari with a broad border adorned with unique motifs in zari work (golden threadwork). Such a sari is famously worn by the locals for weddings and festivals.

    The traditional dancing, rather head-nodding, dolls (locally called Thalaiyatti Bommai) make for a wonderful souvenir for your friends back home. You can even go for the Thanjavur plates or brass and bronze depictions of Hindu deities. Shop for all this and more from government-owned stores or private ones spread across the city. Another option is to visit the workshops of local craftsmen, watch them turn out a work-of-art, and purchase directly from them if you like.

    Restaurants in Thanjavur

    Restaurants - Thanjavur is not really the place for European or Oriental cuisine, sticking to regional delicacies here is a safer bet. The food is flavored with a host of spices and condiments, though coconut and tamarind are added to almost all vegetarian recipes. Not to mention, most dishes are rustled up using coconut oil or coconut milk. Coconut chutney, sambar (seasoned lentil broth), rasam (a hot broth made of tamarind juice and pepper) and mixed spices are served with every meal to enhance the taste. A typical Tamilian meal comprises steamed rice, lentils, grains and vegetables. And if you are non-vegetarian, there is a great variety of Chettinad delicacies to choose from. Chettinad pepper chicken is an all-time favorite of the locals. You can even try out the Tamil style of Mughlai cuisine, especially the biryanis and paya (a type of spiced broth generally eaten with paranthas or appam).

    Typical South Indian breakfast is readily served and to perfection at most local restaurants. Popular breakfast options include idli (steamed rice cakes), dosa (a pancake made from a batter of rice) and lentils crisp fried on a pan, vada (deep fried doughnuts made from a batter of lentils), pongal (a mash of rice and lentils boiled together and seasoned with ghee, cashew nuts, pepper and cumin seed), yogurt and uppma (cooked semolina seasoned in oil with mustard, pepper, cumin seed and dry lentils). Any Tamil meal is incomplete without crisp papadam or appam!

    Continental cuisine is served well at Mullai restaurant in Hotel Oriental Towers on Srinivasam Pillai Road. Try out authentic South Indian specialties at the Marutham restaurant of the same hotel. You can enjoy sumptuous Mughlai cuisine at Satharâs on Gandhiji Road. And Thevarâs is the best biryani place in town. Dheer Garden does a gob job of grilled delights such as tandoori chicken and their in-house specialty âMurthapaâ. If you are in mood for some authentic Chinese, head straight to Rice Bowl that whips up an array of Chinese delicacies including some succulent appetizers.

    Most of the restaurants in this temple town observe the highest hygiene and cleanliness standards. So much so, the state food department makes regular trips into the kitchens of the restaurants to ensure that safety regulations are maintained.
