Rajaraja chola palace
  • Dear Friends,

    the Chola Palace was situated in the Present " Srinivasapuram" area of Thanjavur, near Vadavar river. The area is now under Melaveli Village. It is learnt that Pandiya king invaded Thanjavur during the last chola king and destroyed the palace and believed to have plouged the land with Donkey and sowed seasan seedsm which was considered as great insult to the king who got defeated.
