Thyagaraja Festival

Thyagaraja was the most celebrated saint-composer of South India, who composed several Telugu songs in praise of Lord Rama. His life and works are a source of great inspiration to young poets and musicians. At Tiruvaiyaru, about 13 km. from Tanjore, South Indian musicians gather every year during the month of January at the composer's memorial to sing in his memory.
