Fest at Thanjavur runs for 7 days

The festival at Thanjavur will be a seven-day affair; the hosts here have been following this time table for some years now to accommodate as many artistes as they can.
So this year, the fest which starts on Sivaratri evening will run till March 5, Wednesday at the Brihadeeswara Temple.

Festival co-ordinator Muthukumar says that this year, in association with South Zone Cultural Centre, which has its office in Thanjavur a few dance troupes from north and north east are expected to travel here.

Which means rasikas get to see much more than just Bharatanatyam on the stage, which is the stone base on which the giant image of Nandi stands.
