History of Jayankondam
The Cholas were the super power in Southern part of India in the later centuries of the first millennium and a couple of earlier centuries in the second millennium. The great Rajaraja Chola I (985 AD to 1014 AD) was the most successful ruler in their dynasty. He expanded their limits far from Ceylon in south towards the Ganges in the north and north-east. To commemorate this victory, the Rajendra Chola I, son of Rajaraja Chola I, built a new city in this district and named it as Gaingaikonda Cholapuram, which means the city of Cholas who defeated the Ganges. They shifted their capital from Thanjavur to this new city from then. He selected this place to honour a large number of brave warriors from this place, who assisted the Cholas in their invasions.
Almost all the symbols of the Cholas were ruined by the Chera-Pandya invasion later. There is a Siva temple still exists in this place as a silent spectator of all these historical events. The Brihadeeswara (Siva Temple) is one of the protected monuments declared by the Archaeological Survey of India. It is believed to be built by Rajendra Chola I at the same time he shifted their capital here. It is assumed that they took three decades to completely build the temple.
