Temples And Legends Of Tamilnadu Introduction

Tiruvarur (Tiruvalur) is in the district of Tanjore, connected by the Southern Railway with Madras, a junction at which the Mayavaram Karaikudi and the Tanjore Nagapattinam branch lines cut each other. It is famous for the shrine of Tyagaraja. The temple is gigantic in structure. From a distance of miles the gopurams are visible. It is a great pilgrim centre, through out the year, particularly in the month of Chittirai when the most important festival, the annual festival of Sri Tyagaraja is performed.

There are four gopurams on four sides. The tower on the west is particularly noteworthy for the fine sculpture in brick and mortar. The colossal structure of the temple could be well imagined from its length of 846 feet with breadth of 666 feet.
