He fought many battles with the Chalukyas to the north and the Pandyas to the south. By conquering Vengi, Rajaraja laid the foundation for the Later Chola dynasty. He invaded Sri Lanka and started a century-long Chola occupation of the island. He streamlined the administrative system by dividing the country into various districts and by standardising revenue collection through systematic land surveys. Being an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva, he built the magnificent Peruvudaiyar Temple also known as the Brihadeeswarar Temple in Thanjavur and through it enabled the distribution of wealth amongst his subjects. His successes enabled his son Rajendra Chola I to extend the empire even further.

As told from the annals of South Indian history, A heart that does not melt from the. Recently, a Tamil movie entitled Raja Raja Cholan featured a number of.
SegaRaja Sekaram V A. C, had the traditional history of the temple. He installed a system of audit and control by which the village assemblies and other public bodies were held to account while not curtailing their autonomy. The prominence given to the army from the conquest of the Pandyas down to the last year of the kings reign is significant, and shows the spirit with which he treated his soldiers.
A number of regiments are mentioned in the Tanjore inscriptions and it is evident that Rajaraja gave his army its due share in the glory derived from his extensive conquests.
In most of the foregoing names the first portion appears to be the surnames or titles of the king himself or of his son. That these regiments should have been called after the king or his son is indicative of the attachment the Chola king bore towards his army. It is possible that these royal names were pre-fixed to the designations of these regiments after they had distinguished themselves in some engagement or other.
It is worthy of note that there are elephant troops, cavalry and foot soldiers among these regiments. To some of these regiments, the management of certain minor shrines of the temple was entrusted and they were expected to provide for the requirements of the shrine. Others among them took money from the temple on interest, which they agreed to pay in cash. We are not, however, told to what productive purpose they applied this money. At any rate all these transactions show that the king created in them an interest in the temple he built.
He was also the Mahadandanayaka Panchavan Maharaya supreme commander- of the northern and northwestern dominions. He figures in many of his inscriptions most notably when he and other top officers take a vow to light lamps and make other donations if they escaped from being disgraced during the military operations towards the end of Rajaraja's reign.
Paluvettaraiyars from the region of Thiruchirapalli were closely associated with the Cholas from the time of Parantaka I when he married a Paluvettaraiyar princess, were occupying a high position in the Chola administration. They were apparently enjoying full responsibility and administration of the region of Paluvur. One of the names of these feudal chieftains found in inscriptions were Adigal Paluvettaraiyar Kandan.
He built a massive temple in Gangai konda cholapuram a mile stone of chola architecture. Madurantakan Gandaradityan who served in Rajarajas court as an important official in the department of temple affairs. He conducted enquiries into temple affairs in various parts of the country, punishing defaulters.
The other names of officials found in the inscriptions are the Bana prince Narasimhavarman, a general Senapathi Sri Krishnan Raman, the Samantha chief Vallavarayan Vandiyadevan, the revenue official Irayiravan Pallavarayan and Kuruvan Ulagalandan who organised the countrywide land surveys.
As far as we know at present, Rajaraja was the first king of South India to introduce this innovation into his inscriptions. Before his time powerful kings of the Pallava, Pandya and Chola dynasties had reigned in the South, and some of them had made extensive conquests. But none of them seems to have considered leaving a record on stone of his military achievements. The idea of Rajaraja to add a short account of his military achievements at the beginning of every one of his inscriptions was entirely his own.
His action in this respect is all the more laudable because his successors evidently followed his example and have left us more or less complete records of their conquests. But for the historical introductions, which are often found at the beginning of the Tamil inscriptions of Chola, kings the lithic records of the Tamil country would be of very little value, and consequently even the little advance that has been made in elucidating the history of Southern India would be difficult.
An inscription by Rajaraja in Tamil, found in the Mulbagal district of Karnataka, shows his accomplishments as early as the 19th year. An excerpt from such a Meikeerthi, an inscription recording great accomplishments, follows: In the 19th year of the reign of sri-Kv-IRjarja-IRjaksaripanmar who,- while his heart rejoiced that like the goddess of fortune, the goddess of great earth had also become his great wife- during his long life of growing gracefulness, was pleased to destroy the ships at Kndalr Slai; conquered with his heroic and victorious army Vngai-ndu, Gangapadi, Nulambapadi, Tadigai-vali, Kollam, Kalingam, Kudumalai-ndu and after having crossed the deep sea, the impregnamble N..
Rajaraja not only was particular about recording his achievements, but also was equally diligent in preserving the records of his predecessors.
For instance, an inscription of his reign found at Tirumalavadi near Thruchi records an order of the king to the effect that the central shrine of the Vaidyanatha temple at the place should be rebuilt and that, before pulling down the walls, the inscriptions engraved on them should be copied in a book.
The records were subsequently re-engraved on the walls from the book after the rebuilding was finished. He also had several temples for Vishnu constructed.
He also encouraged the construction of the Buddhist Chudamani Vihara at the request of the Srivijaya king Sri Maravijayatungavarman.
Rajaraja dedicated the proceeds of the revenue from the village of Anaimangalam towards the upkeep of this Vihara. Thus Saiva literature which covers about years of religious, philosophical and literary development. His elder brother Aditya II was assassinated c. We also know of at least one daughter of Rajaraja called Rajaraja Kundavai Alvar who he named after his sister.
Rajaraja must have had at least three daughters. One of the daughter was named after Rajaraja Cholan's sister -Kundavai who was married to the Chalukya Prince Vimaladithan. Another daughter was called as Mathevalzagal and was mentioned as the Naduvit Penn meaning middle daughter in one of the Thiruvilachuzhi inscriptions.
Rajaraja was succeeded by Rajendra Chola I. His natal star was Sadhayam. And then as always you can also find Nadigar Thilagam Sir Shivaji Ganeshan also in the middle of things. They really did some research for that movie. Got to give the creators the credit for that.
But then i think Mr. Sivakumar daddy of Mr. Surya played the character of Rajendra Chola, who would have thought that character would be as famous as Sir Shivaji Ganeshan himself.
If they had made that movie in the 90s Sir Kamal Hassan would have played the role of Rajendra, and they might have had a Part 2 as well, and even a prequel if Sir Gemini Ganeshan was interested in playing the role of Sundara Cholan daddy of Raja Raja Cholan.
So Raja Raja built the ship that is the empire, Rajendra steered it into a larger one.
