  • Interesting

    Vikrama Chola? There is a Kali temple in Samayapuram that was to have been built / meditated by Vikramaditya, is that the northern Vikramaditya or this Vikrama Chola?
    Any ideas?
  • In Samayapuram, There is a Sivan Temple, and there are Manuscrits that engraved in copper plates, which was written by hand by MMS and now at OML.
    Kulothuga III donated lands to this temple.
    Samayapuram Mariamman temple was construted on the place where Rani mangamma was  cremated.
    It was known as Sellayee koil.
