Navaratri Golu and other festivals

Today navaratri golu is incomplete without keeping Tanjore dolls in display. Tanjore dolls were brought to Thanjavur by Maratha King Serfoji II in the early 19th century. The kolu tradition was popular among the royal families of Thanjavur and Pudukottai.

Raja Raja Cholan’s Sadaya Vizha (19,20th Oct 2018)

Raja Raja Cholan born as Arulmozhivarman, the second son of Parantaka Cholan II and Vanavan Mahadevi.He is considered an unequalled monarch who ruled the entire south India. After the death of his brother and crown prince Aditya Karikalan, there was political instability in the country. To put an end to this, Raja Rajan asked his uncle to take over the thrown and ascended it only after his demise 15 years later. Raja Raja’s period was considered the golden age of the Cholas. He is noted for promoting art, and the Brihadeeswara Temple in Thanjavur is a testimony to his love for art and spirituality.

Diwali on November 6, 2018.
