Gangaikonda Cholapuram was famed as the capital of the Cholas during 11th century. It was during the reign of Rajendra Chola I, Gangaikonda Cholapuram reached the pinnacle of its fame. The name Gangaikonda Cholapuram means the city of the Chola King who captured the Ganges. This region has a special place in the history of India. This religious village, which served as the capital for nearly 250 years, still holds the remains of the Chola Kingdom and the structures of architectural values.

The prime attraction at this place is the great temple of Lord Shiva. This temple is similar to the great temple Brihadisvara temple at Thanjavur. This temple is just behind the Thanjavur temple in its monumental nature and designs. There is a structure of a Vimana which holds the visitor's sight. It resembles the pyramidal tower in Thanjavur temple. The temple attracts steady flow of pilgrims everyday.
