I love to visit the historical temples and heritage sites of India. Recently I came to know about a place called Gangaikondacholapuram in Tamil Nadu which has an ancient temple built during the medieval era. It was constructed during the rule of the Chola dynasty. The temple is known for its architectural brilliance and it is apparently one of the largest temples in the entire India. Although I could gather lots of information about the architecture and history of Gangaikondacholapuram temple from the internet, there is hardly any information on the exact location of the place and how to reach there. Can anyone in the forum please guide me about how to reach Gangaikondacholapuram? I am based out of Chennai and planning to use my own vehicle for this trip. Kindly help me with information on the best possible route and driving direction from Chennai to Gangaikondacholapuram temple.
