The Thanjavur Rajarajeswarem Temple should be under the trusteeship of "Tamil Nadu - Inthu Aranilayam"
The "Greatest living "Historical Monument of Tamilian Pride" - is the "Thanjavur Rajarajaeswarem Thirukkoyil" (also known as 'Birahatheeswarem Temple' and as 'Thanjai Periya Koyil'). This magnificient architectural monument was constructed by Rajaraja Chola - 1 (A.D.985 - 1014) one of the two "greatest Tamil emperors of Tamil Nadu" to commemorate his great achievement of having built the mighty "Tamil Chola Empire" which encompassed three forth of India and the countries overseas.Presently this temple is still under the trusteeship of the decendents of "Maraatiyar kings", instead of it being under the trusteeship of "Tamil Nadu Inthu Aranilayam" or a Board comprising of "Eminent Native Tamil Saivite Personnel" who are intellectuals highly dedicated in the field of "Tamil Saivaism" Religion and in "Tamil Language and Culture".
All "Tamil Saivites of Tamil Nadu" should jointly endevour 'very hard' - to ensure that the Trusteeship of ''Thanjai Rajarajeswarem Thirukkoyil" is released from the grips of the 'present decendents' of the last "Maraatiyar king of Thanjavur" before it fell into the hands of British. "Mannar Aatchi" has now ended after the British Goverment gave independence to India and the Tamil Nadu is under the "Makkal Aatchi". Hence it is nothing but correct for the Tamil Nadu Goverment to take "immediate action to bring this Great Historic Temple - a Pride of all Tamilians of Tamil Nadu and all over the World, to be brought under the purview and Trusteeship of the "Tamil Nadu Inthu Aranilayam" - immediately.
