On the banks of Vennar River, in the districts of Thanjavur, lies a small village called Kallaperumbur, home to two temples of antiquity - Brihannayaki Sametha Kailasanathar (A Shiva Temple) and the Varadaraja Perumal (A Vishnu Temple). (1/6)
With the inscriptions found in the dilapidated gopuram of the Shiva Temple (Image 2), we can trace back this temple to the period of Kulottunga Chola of the 12th /13th century. (2/6)
The Temple is a vast complex with sanctums for the Parivara Daivatas including Nruthi, Vinayagar, Subhramnaya and a separate sanctum outside the main complex for the Goddess. A small niche on the outer walls of the Maha Mandapa has a sculpture of Natraja and Parvati. (3/6)

#MadrasHighCourt issues notice in plea against HR&CE 2020 Rules in so far it allows “fit persons” (appointed in the absence of temple trustees) to select archakas to #HinduTemples. Petitioner argues that archakas not trained in agamas relevant to temples may be thereby appointed
Any appointments made will abide by the result of the petition since it prima facie appears that the appointment by a fit person may not be the appropriate form under the (HR&CE) Act of 1959: #MadrasHighCourt

@tnhrcedept #HinduTemples
It would do well for the positions of trustees lying vacant or unfilled to be filled up in the appropriate manner and in accordance with law so that such trustees can, in terms of the (HR&CE) Act of 1959, choose the archakas: #MadrasHighCourt adds in interim order

Mannarpolur Azhagu Mallari Krishnaswami Temple Mannarpolur is a small village on the banks of ‘Kalindi’ river near Sullurpeta in Nellore District of Andhra Pradesh. There is a very ancient temple in this village, which is almost a sleepy little village. Once upon a time, this Image
must have been an important village, certainly far more important than Sullurpeta which must have been of a fairly recent origin. The basis for saying that Mannarpolur must have been an important village is the fact that this temple is believed to date back to the 10th century Image
and is the only important temple in a radius of about 40 kms. There is no other important temple apart from this temple until Srikalahasti in Chittor District or till Nellore.
The temple itself has many unusual features. The main shrine has Lord Krishna with Satyabhama and Image

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.
Not a year passed in which #India did not take 50 million sesterces away from #Rome.
