Located in Dharasuram, the credit for the construction of Airavatheeswara Temple goes to Raja Raja II.Considered as one of the most poignant representations of the Chola architecture, Airavatheeswara Temple has been adjudged a world heritage monument by UNESCO. India Holiday Travel.com is your indispensable one-stop guide when it comes to furnishing inputs on Airavatheeswara Temple.

Airavatheeswara Temple dates back the latter half of the twelfth century. The structure of the temple is beautifully carved and rises to around 23 meters in high. Besides the vimanam, the other remarkable features of the Airavatheewara Temple are its ardha Mandapam and the Maha Mandapam that incorporated a hundred pillars. Airavatheeswara Temple is a beautifully carved structure and will leave you thoroughly impressed if you are a connoisseur of art. One of the eye-catching aspects of the Airavatheeswara Temple are the sculptures that adorn the outer walls of the Maha Mandapam. You can’t stop raving about the artistic skills of the craftsmen once you take a close look at the figures. This apart, there are the exquisitely carved panels within the Maha Mandapam and the pillars and the walls of the enclosure that you can marvel at.

Another must-see aspect of the Airavatheeswara Temple is the statue of Annapoorani housed in the ardha Mandapam. It is a fantastic piece of sculpture, the face aglow in a smile, the left hand carrying a brass vessel and a lotus in the right hand. The statue is yet another manifestation of the superb artistry of the period. The chariot like projections in the eastern and the western side act as the common feature, a sort of distinguishing mark of the twelve other Chola temples. The wheels and the spokes bear ample testimony to rare mastery on the part of the artist.

Another feature of the Airavatheeswara Temple that needs special mention is the tread stones set within the Nandi enclosure. Rhythmic notes of music generated from it testify to the superb engineering skills of the craftsmen of the period.
