GANGAIKONDA CHOLAPURAM TEMPLE TAMILNADU INDIA

This temple was built by Rajendra Chola the Tamil king (11th Century)

He is the brother of Raja Raja Chola who built the Thanjavoor Big Temple.

The huge Bull (religiously known as Nandhi) seen in front of the

Temple has been built with brick stones and morter.

The Nandhi is facing the God (Lord Shiva) inside the sanctum.
