Ariyalur is a town and district headquarters of Ariyalur district in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu and is rich in limestone ,surrounded with seven cement factories and two sugar factories. The town is located at a distance of 310 km (190 mi) from the state capital Chennai. Ariyalur was a part of the erstwhile Trichinopoly District until India's independence in 1947 and Tiruchirappalli district until 1995, Perambalur district until 2007 and subsequently a part of the newly formed Ariyalur district. The town is a part of the fertile Cauvery Delta and the major profession in the town is agriculture.
Located in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, Ariyalur district was, many eons ago, completely submerged beneath the sea. But geological forces had their way, and as the region rose out of the water, it grew to eventually become a hub for agriculture and the limestone and cement industries.
History suggests that Ariyalur is one of those areas in India that has been inhabited since prehistoric times, by Paleolithic and Neolithic dwellers. Subsequently, many kingdoms have laid claim to this small region, but the one that had the greatest influence on the district was the Chola dynasty. A number of temples in Ariyalur have stood the test of time, since the days of the Cholas, and are important points of interest in the region today.
The village of Gangaikonda Cholapuram, in Ariyalur, is a testament to the Cholas’ long and prosperous rule over the region. They built a number of temples and structures in the area, though most were destroyed in subsequent wars. The one temple that still stands and continues to attract devotees from far and wide is the Brihadeeswara Shiv Temple. The architecture of this temple, declared a protected monument by the Archeological Survey of India, follows the style of the Thanjavur temples, found across the state.
