The Tyagarajasvami Temple in Tiruvarur, a major historic site in the heart of the Tamil country, has preserved among its many treasures, a set of ceiling paintings from the 17th century. These magnificent paintings tell the story of Mucukunda, the monkey-faced Chola king who established Lord Tyagaraja, in the Tiruvarur temple. They also offer tantalizing glimpses of daily life, material culture, flora and fauna, temple architecture and ritual performance from this period.This book provides a complete record of the Mucukunda murals as photographed by V K Rajamani, with an introduction by David Shulman, and an interpretative essay by Maya Tevet Dayan. Printed Pages: 148 with 80 colour illustrations.
