The 1,034th Sathaya Vizha marking the birth anniversary of King Raja Raja Chola got underway here on Tuesday. Collector A. Annadurai, who inaugurated the two-day festival, described the Chola emperor as a multi-faceted personality who excelled in various spheres.

He built the Big Temple with perfect planning and confidence. He chose a rocky terrain to build the temple as the Cauvery and other rivers flowed to the north of Thanjavur. The art and architecture of the temple stood testimony to his greatness. The Big Temple and the Grand Anicut indicated that Tamils excelled in water management.
