Volume 4: The history of India

The Konark temple was built by Narasimha Deva I in honour of Surya, the Sun god, but as per mythology, Krishna’s son, Samba had built a temple for the Sun god. Thanjavur’s origin is linked to the asura Thanjan, slain by Vishnu himself, who asked that a beautiful town come up at the spot while dying. Years later, the Brihadeeswara temple was built there by Raja Raja Chola I, found in the temple city standing today.
