Tamil Nadu Temple Run: Srinivasanallur

Srinivasanallur is a village some 40 odd kilometers from Trichy, and is the site for the early-10th c Koranganatha Temple. This is a small Chola temple built around 80 years before the huge Brihadeshwara temple at Thanjavur, but has stylistic similarities, such as a general cuboid design for the mandapa and sanctum structure, spaces of unadroned wall between pilasters, and a square two-story base (sanctum structure) for the shikhar (main tower), which in this case is very small compared to the base.

For an introduction to my Tamil Nadu Temple Run trip, visit the first (Chidambaram) post.
