He told in his speech....
Would you believe if someone tells you that about a thousand years ago, an over sixty metres tall pillar of granite was built and another granite rock weighing about 80 tonnes was placed over its top. But, Brihadeshwara temple of Thanjavur in Tamil Nadu is the place where this unbelievable combination of Engineering and Architecture can be seen.
He has also said India takes great pride in the fact that Tamil is the most ancient of world languages.
We should feel proud of our heritage monuments, history and should preserve and safe guard it. It is our first pride. Jai hind.
