Places to visit in Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu


Thanjavur shone under the rule of the Cholas, before being taken over by the Nayaks and, in the 17th century, the Marathas. All of these dynasties played an important role in making Thanjavur the cultural epicentre of its time. It was during the Maratha rule that many of its arts found an outlet, thanks to Serfoji II, possibly the land’s most beloved ruler.
