Tiruvaiyaru means confluence of five rivers. There are five rivers that converge in this small town are: The Five Rivers are Arisilaaru,Vennaaru,Vettaaru,Kudamruttiayaaru and Cauveryaaru. I traveled in Thanjavur last week and was lucky to be able to see and take pics of each of these five rivers which are posted below. You will note that all names end with "aaru" which means "river" in Tamil.
