Nov 13, A. Though it was tiring to read, once I finished I kind of missed the 10th century. Who has written Gangai Konda Cholan? So keeping the charismatic charm of the great king and his grandeur achievements as the base the author ties up the society and the people in an intricate web with a mix of both facts and fiction.

In a crux this book can be read if you are really curious about Raja Raja and the golden age of Cholas. If not, this will be shelved in the mid-way. I feel this review is: The achievements of the Kings udayaf repeated multiple times and many more.

In his many novels he shows immense interest in enlightenment. The credit goes to the Author only. In between the author narrates the societal pressure of arraying lakhs and lakhs of slaves to do the work inside the Capital, the stringent military system to keep the law and order, the food to feed them, the social uprising in-between the castes and the great changes in the system that this temple construction brings into the lives of Tanjore.


RajaRajan is the well known King for all Tamil people.

From this book only i came to know the method of construction of Big temple. I really learned about temple, Rajarajan and his people A bunch of characters are introduced in a particular udayr and as we read they were either left out or portrayed in a completely different way.

The novel brings in more philoshopical thoughts and as well makes us understand mind set of people. Its totally biased and faithful towards his caste and beliefs. Many were brushed off on a very higher level.

There are n number of story lines that are not finished at all. As a balakumwran Tanjore person though it is regretful that I am yet to visit the place and by extension the Chola empire, I balakhmaran definitely read all the six volumes. Open Preview See a Problem? Cheers, Diana Janet Joseph.
