About thanjavur

Located in the state of Tamil Nadu, Thanjavur is a small city of immense importance culturally not only to the state but for India as well. Thanjavur was officially known as Tanjore during the British rule and is primarily known for its various temples that were built by the great kingdoms of Southern India such as the Cholas, Pandyas, and the Vijayanagara Empire. \n\nThe Brihadeeswara Temple is the most famous among them. Thanjavur is also famous for its artwork which is known all over the world as Tanjore paintings. Although Thanjavur is a place mostly known for its cultural heritage, it is also an important commercial center. It is in the heart of Tamilnadu within the Cauvery delta, which is known as the rice bowl of the state. Much of the agricultural trade within the region passes through this city. Thanjavur silk is yet another export of this town, although most of the saris are made in the neighboring towns and villages within the Thanjavur district. This silk has very high demand, and it is exported to all parts of India and other countries as well.
