The temple celebrated 1000 years of its existence recently and has been touched up for the same. The structure appears to be sand blasted or painted over and has a dull sandy shade to it.
Also some modern additions appear rather incongruous and mar the overall appearance of the temple. The complex is again well maintained and unlike the other temple is much frequented by tourists. Again a day may not suffice to completely capture the temple into ones senses there is so much to see, feel and savour. The displays in the hall nearby are wonderful and explain the temple, the history of Cholas, the architecture, sculpture and the paintings and can be a real eye opener.

- Built a shout away from Pallavapuram (now Pallavaram) and in close quarters to the erstwhile capital of the Pallava dynasty, why Chola? This question was partly answered by the brochure that explains that the Chola empire was the most glorious of the Southern India. But still the doubt lingers…
- The Cheras had the bow, the Pandyas the fish, the Pallavas the Lion and the Cholas the Tiger as their emblems, however the motif that dominated the hotel was the elephant. I did not get the connect for the same.
- The absence or relative weak wi-fi signal in corridors 33
- We noticed the incomplete or broken light fixtures in the corridor, for a new hotel looked like an oversight
