    Anbumikka Minish,

    Thanking you very much for leading us to this "wonderful" Website which provides the Research Article on Karikaalan - with very valuable and intricate details on Karikaalan which all Readers should not miss to read. It was thrilling to me see the stone image said to be of Karikaalan at Ehambaraeswarer temple at Kanchipuram. I note the Author of this Article is "Thiru Avinash" and my congratulations to him in providing a a "very usefull study" on this king, and his Research article should be preserved.

    The Author could add more informations on to same on his war expedition to North India, carving of Chola emblem the tiger on Himalayas, and his victory over the North Indian kings, and on the war trophies he brought from this expedition - from these countries. Also on his connection with the Indra Villa celeberated during this time in Chola Nadu, etc etc. The great Tamil Epics of Cheranaadu (composed from Kodungallur of Kerala the former Vanchi Nagar)namely the Silappathikaaram, and Manimekalai, Pattinappaalai (Paththuppaattu), Pathittruppaththu, Puranaanuuru, Ahanaanuuru, Nattrinai etc etc speaks much on him. The medieval Cholar Cheppedukal too gives informations on Karikaal Cholan especially in the Sanskrit portion of these Cheppedukal.

    Hope his Reasearch work will be "well preserved" in a "book form" very soon.
