Rajarajeswaram 1000 enters Limca Book of Records

February 27, 2012

On September 25, 2010, 1000 dancers performed Bharatanatyam at the Brihadeeswara Temple in Thanjavur as an offering on the occasion of the 1000th Anniversary of the temple’s consecration.

Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam (President, ABHAI) choreographed three items and led from the front. The event was organized by the Association of Bharatanatyam Artistes of India (ABHAI), Chennai and Brihan Natyanjali Foundation, Thanjavur. Through the efforts initiated by KS Sudhakar of Swathi Soft Solutions, who documented and helped web stream the event live,  the unique Brihan Natya Yagna called Rajarajeswaram 1000 has entered the Limca Book of Records as “National Record 2012.”

ABHAI and Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam have received citations.
