Later Chola Empire


Before He started His career as a redeemer and liberator of the Tamil's Race, Language & Literature and Religion, His Holiness SIDDHAR KARUWOORAAR studied the past history and literature thoroughly. Then only He took steps and decisions to achieve His ideas through the means of political revolutions and socio-religious renaissances.

For that He observed the situations that prevailed at that time in the social and political circles and analysed the general tendencies and other factors that were predominant. Then He Himself selected the persons who could conceive a suitable person fit to be the beginner of a new Royal dynasty and created the Royal family.

This was known as Later Chola Royal Family which belonged to the Solar Dynasty (Surya Kulam) according to Tamil Heritage. He selected a place near Thiruvaiyaaru and named it as Thanjavur. At this new place He planned the capital city Thanjavur, protected by Seven Forts and Seven Moats around it.

In this city Thanjavur, He erected the 'Sathi Linga' temple having a very unique temple architecture based on His latest research in temple science. The presiding deities in the temple were named as Periya Udaiyar and Periya Nayagi.

He made this temple a spring having spontaneous flow of Divine Atoms to supply Divine Powers to all the temples on this hemisphere, irrespective of religion, nation and language. He had such a global, magnanimous plan because He was for the Immortal philosophy of the Pathinen Siddhars' Siddharism.

This Siddharism preaches and teaches the very high ideals like

'Liberation of Races, Languages & Literatures and Religions', 'The Universal Equality, Brotherhood, Socialistic and Communistic Society', 'The International Spiritual Unity and Uniformity'.

He succeeded in His attempts in founding the capital city Thanjavur and the Big Temple of Thanjavur;

  • (i) the big city to fulfill His notions and aims of Politics,
  • (ii) the big Temple to fulfill His policies, principles, philosophy, theology, religious ideas, redeeming services and renaissance movements.

Thus He worked towards achieving his goals using the city and the temple as his two arms. These two stand there even today after a thousand years as a proof of His life-time achievements and failures.

That is why by giving a lightning like historical and divinical explanations to the above two in this book an attempt to make the present society to think about His Holiness is envisaged. It is strongly felt that by speaking about the Thanjavur and its Big temple alone one can throw light upon the greatness and immortalities of the Tamils' history hitherto kept in darkness.
