The Rajarajeshvara temple is located at Thanjavur and had the following characteristics:  
o It had the tallest shikhara amongst temples of its time.  
o The construction of this temple was not easy because there were no cranes in those 
days and the 90 tonne stone for the top of the shikhara was too heavy to lift 
manually.  
o So, the architects built an inclined path to the top of the temple, placed the boulder 
on rollers and rolled it all the way to the top.  
o The path started more than four kilometres away so that it would not be too steep 
and was dismantled after the temple was constructed.  
o However, the residents of the area remembered the experience of the construction 
of the temple for a long time. Even now a village near the temple is called 
Charupallam, which means the ‘Village of the Incline’.

Shah Jahan’s reign was notable for successes against the Deccan states. The Afghan noble 
Khan Jahan Lodi rebelled and was defeated. Campaigns were launched against 
Ahmadnagar, the Bundelas were defeated and Orchha was seized. In the north-west, the 
campaign to seize Balkh from the Uzbegs was unsuccessful and Qandahar was lost to the 
Safavids. In 1632, Ahmadnagar was finally annexed and the Bijapur forces sued for peace. 
In 1657-1658, there was conflict over succession amongst Shah Jahan’s sons. 
Aurangzeb was victorious and his three brothers, including Dara Shukoh, were killed. Shah 
Jahan was imprisoned for the rest of his life in Agra. 
Thus, he is considered as one of the greatest Mughals and his rule has been called the 
Golden Age and one of the most prosperous ages of Indian civilisation.
