Thyagaraja temple is a Shiva temple, located in the town of Thiruvarur. Shiva is worshiped as Vanmiganathar, and is represented by the lingam. The temple complex covers 30 acres. It houses four gateway towers known as gopurams. The tallest is the eastern tower, with four stories and a height of 30 metres. The temple has the largest chariot in Asia and the annual Chariot festival is celebrated during the month of April.
The present masonry structure was built during the Chola dynasty in the 9th century, while later expansions are attributed to Vijayanagar rulers of the Sangama Dynasty (1336–1485 CE), the Saluva Dynasty and the Tuluva Dynasty (1491–1570 CE). The picture has been taken from a boat on the Kamalnayak tank. Source : wiki
