Summary[edit]

Description
English: The Chidambaram temple is dedicated to Nataraja - Shiva as the lord of dance. The dance theme is shown in the artwork embedded inside the temple complex. For example, the inner wall of the eastern gopura, completed in the 13th century, shows all 108 dance mudra from the ancient Natya Shastra text. These postures are a part of the Bharatanatyam dance.
