Hinduism - Wh oWas Raja Raja Of The Chola Dynasty?

 

Raja Raja (r. 985–1014)   

The Chola dynasty achieved its pinnacle of dominance during his leadership (and that of his son Rajendra), extended its authority from the Tanjore area of Tamil Nadu to southern India and into Southeast Asia all the way to Malaysia.

The money that such authority provided to Raja Raja was used to create huge temples.

He is most known for the Brhadeshvar temple at Tanjore, which is devoted to Shiva, the "Great Lord."
