The Centre will release a coin featuring Brahadeeswarar temple at Tanjore, a world heritage monument declared by UNESCO, which completed 1,000 years of its existence this year.

Based on the uniqueness of the temple and its architecture, the Centre has decided to release the coin following a request made by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidh, a release said here on Sunday.

Mr. Karunanidhi also requested the Centre to release a stamp to mark the temple’s 1,000 years of existence.
