Built during the 11th and the 12th centuries, the Living Temples at Thanjavur are a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Tamil Nadu. The construction of the temples is attributed to the Chola Dynasty who ruled southern India from 200-1246 AD. The temples are dedicated to the Hindu deity Shiva and are remarkable examples of Dravidian architecture.
