Thanjavur Travel Guide

Thanjavur is an ancient city in the Thanjavur district in the state of Tamil Nadu. It is a welcoming place for history and architecture buffs. Now a modern town, it was earlier the capital of the Cholas. It is famously known as the Rice Bowl of South India as it grows a large amount of paddy crops and sugarcane.
This town houses the ancient Brihadeeswara Temple (UNESCO World Heritage Site) built by Raja Raja Chola I around the 10th century. Great Living Chola Temples, Thanjavur Maratha Palace, Saraswathi Mahal Library with ancient palm-leaf Indian and European manuscripts, Schwartz Church, Sivaganga Park and Royal Palace Museum are must-visit attractions in the city. The climate in the city is usually hot and humid so it is best to visit in the months between October and February. A number of restaurants are available in the city area with South-Indian delicacies.
