This review is from: Thanjavur: A Cultural History (Hardcover)
I have been to this wonderful city in India many times and was hoping for a spectacular book illustrated with magnificent pictures of 'Big Temple' and of course the fabulous Chola Bronzes that are in the old Palace Museum.
Not the case ... this is some dry stuffy history book with old pictures that might be of interest to someone actually living there and wanting to have an in depth account of the city and the people who lived there. This book is for you ... but not for me!!!
