The Brihadeesvara Temple, a supreme example of Chola architecture
Because this temple is an architectural marvel, an aesthetic delight. Because it is the product of the collaborative, creative genius of architects, engineers, designers, builders and sculptors of more than a thousand years ago. Because it is indicative of amazing technical skills and artistic prowess. Because it has withstood many earthquakes and at least one major fire. Because, even to this day, we are unable to fathom how it was done. Because it's breathtakingly beautiful. The Brihadeeshwara Temple, Thanjavur.
