District Collectorate


New Collectorate Building

The district collectorate functions under the aegis of Dr. N Subbaiyan IAS from a magnificient new building at Pillayarpatti off the Thanjavur-Tiruchi National Highway. The seat of power in Thanjavur till 2015 was the multi-domed aesthetically appealing British-era Collectorate on Kutchery Road for more than 110 years. The same has been converted into the District Collectorate Musuem hosting more than 15 galleries and as a fond memory of the colonial legacy.

The new building has been constructed at a cost of Rs. 30.50 crore in the specifically earmarked 61.42 acre land at Pillaiyarpatti. While the ground floor is spread over 68,561 square feet, the first floor spans 49,674 sq. ft., the second covers 43,249 sq. ft. and the third floor is spread over 41,201 sq. ft. for a total plinth area of 2.02 lakh sq. ft. The building has space to house 22 government departments, two massive public conference halls and an official meeting hall.

Apart from the main entrance to the Collectorate, there are four entrances to access the departments easily from various sides. The specially formed Green Club looks after the maintenance of the collectorate complex and promotes green and sustainable practices.
