    THANJAVUR: The State government will celebrate the 1,000 {+t} {+h} year of
    construction of Big Temple built by King Rajaraja Cholan here in a grand
    manner said Chief Minister, M. Karunanidhi here on Tuesday.

    He said that the grand anicut built by Karikala Cholan and the Big Temple
    built by Rajaraja Cholan were two architectural marvels.

    “We have to salute Rajaraja Cholan who had built such a big temple. I always
    wondered at the height of the vimana and other aspects of the temple. I am
    very happy to announce at Thanjavur that the State government will celebrate
    the millennium of the temple. The date, venue and mode of celebrations will
    be announced later,” he said.
