Brihadeeswarar Temple is a Hindu temple located in Thanjavur city, Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu. Lord Shiva is the primary deity of this temple. This temple is engineered by Raja Raja Chola I and the construction is completed in the year 1010 which means that this temple is 1000 years old by 2010. This temple is very big and its height is around 65 meters. A shocking fact is that the entire temple structure is made of granite but the nearest source of granite is 60 kilometers away from the temple.
