    Solution:

    Rajarajadeva built the Rajarajeshwara temple in Thanjavur.
    King Rajarajadeva of Thanjavur built the Rajarajeshvara temple to worship the God Rajarajeswaram. During that period, the names of God and the king were very similar. The king adopted God's name because he wanted to present himself as a deity. Hence, when people paid their respects to the God Rajarajeshvaram through temple rituals, it would naturally also honour King Rajarajadeva. The concept of deities worshipped in temples equates with kings worshipped by people. Moreover, it gave the idea that the king had brought God's just rule to earth.
