Thanjavur is one of the ancient cities of India in the Southern State of Tamil Nadu. The prosperous agrarian city was ruled by various dynasties like Cholas (850-1279 AD), Pandyas (1279-1311 AD), Vijayanagaras (1535 AD), Madurai Nayaks, Thanjavur Nayaks, Marathas (1674 AD) and later the British Colonists (1799 AD). Historically, an important centre of art, architecture, culture and spirituality, most of the UNESCO World Heritage Monuments – great Living Chola temples – are located in and around Thanjavur.

Thanjavur rose to prominence as a Chola capital in 850 AD and the finest specimen of Temple architecture, Brihadeeswarar temple stands majestic, built in the first decade of the eleventh century. The Famous Saraswati Mahal Library, housing over 30000 Indian and European manuscripts, the Palace and prominent temples proximal to Thanjavur make it an ideal spot to explore Thiruvaiyaru, Srirangam, Kumbakonam – the region which is the confluence of the arts.

Home of the famous Thanjavur style of Bharatanatyam, India’s predominant classical dance form, Thanjavur also witnessed the codification of Carnatic Music and the evolution of the famous Cire Perdue or lost wax sculpture technique of Chola Bronzes. Thanjavur offers a rich legacy and the ultimate experience of the fine arts of India.

‘An Amazing Stay!

“An overwhelming entrance and an amazing stay! We entered the hotel Svatma after a long day in a car. I have been traveling in Asia, Europe & America and stayed at a lot of hotels, but I have never been met and taken care of in such an overwhelming amazing way.”

Every detail at Svatma shows care, thought, and good taste

“The finest hotel at which we stayed in southern India. A beautiful heritage property; well-appointed and well-designed rooms; excellent coffee and crisp, flavourful dosas, perfectly ripe fruit (including mangoes!); kind and highly attentive staff; a cool pool; a walkable neighbourhood beyond the gate. Every detail at Svatma shows care, thought, and good taste. Highly recommended.”

A World inside the World

“When I say you should stay here once, you definitely should. This place is so serene and relaxing, it’s just exquisite. This place can surely be stated as a “A World inside the World.” The property, even being a Heritage one, is well maintained, orderly, beautiful and innovative. This is one of those places that can give big hotel chains here in India a serious run for their money.”

Svatma was one of the places that just blew me away

“Svatma was one of the places that just blew me away. From the moment I entered the hotel, I felt like a queen. The welcome from the management and staff was exceptional. The rooms were spacious and very well designed. The massages are a must. Svatma staff know how to make you feel relaxed.”
