Darasuram – A UNESCO world heritage site

The Airavateswara temple at Darasuram with its heavily  ornamented pillars accurate in detail and richly sculpted walls,  is a classic example of Chola art and architecture. This is the second time I am visiting this temple. Dharasuram is a town located 3 kilometres from Kumbakonam in Thanjavur District, Tamil Nadu, India. Each time I visit this temple I am amazed by the brilliant architecture and the serenity surrounding this small town.A must visit for anyone venturing to visit Tamil Nadu..
