Clouds Behind the History, Thanjavur Big Temple from Chola Dynasty (10th Century BC)

This was taken during a full moon night with clouds behind the Main Tower (210 feet) of Chola Temple (Dated back to 10th Century BC). I have categorized this under 'Sustainable Travel' since i believe this ‘UNESCO Approved World Heritage Monument’ needs more recognition and should receive more light from worldwide Media which in turn will help in preserving and promoting this Majestic Architectural structures standing for centuries. This promotion also plays a major part in improving the Eco and Historical Tourism in and around this place.
