The Brideshwar temple at Thanjavur, Tamil Nadu was constructed by Great Chola king Rajaraja-1 about a thousand years ago. There are theories about skill used in building this temple along with theories that Aliens built it and power of secret vedic mantras helped in lifting the tonnes of granite. But there are also some stories that this temple could not be consecrated due to some reasons and therefore King Rajaraja’s son Rajendra Chola constructed its replica at a place called Gangaikonda Chola puram ( 70 KM off Thanjavur). These both temples are pearl to be seen and if you do not see you will miss something…. . THis is incredible India and that is why India was called ” Sone ki Chidiya”……..Just unbelievable about 70,000 people visited this temple on Dec,31,2017.
This temple has something more to offer to tourists as many stories are associated with this temple unlike other temples.
Today Ujjain abounds in temples and traditions and legends are still even today attached to each of them. But it is true that mostly (almost all) are built upon sites of antiquity and none have survived in original now. Desecration and despoiling time and time again , the structures that stand today are more of recent dates, renovated or rebuilt.
just impresses that how much efforts our ancestors did to carry forward and spread their faith in Hindu religion and this temple I feel is one more stone to prove why Hindu religion is Sanatan (eternal).
People who love history will know the importance of this place. This place on bank of river Bes is just 20 KM from Sanchi and one must visit. The 1600 years old caves are almost among two low hills and forests.
About 1000 years old group of Hindu temples known as Baijnath Dham temple in Uttarakhand. It is small but when you are on Uttarakhand visit you must visit this. This carries our rich history and eternal faith. Inspite the Katyuri kingdoms (800 to 1100 AD) were on flee due to frequent invasions from Chand dynasty of Kannauj, later Nepalis, the Katuri kingdom gave a lot of treasure to Uttarakhand in form of temples and hence founded the eternal faith and we are continuing the same rich tradition today.
