A spectrum of Hindu temple styles continued to develop from the 5th to the 9th century The early Chola period saw a greater emphasis on securing their geopolitical boundaries and less emphasis on architecture. In the 10th century, within the Chola empire emerged features such as the multifaceted columns with projecting square capitals. This, states George Michell, signaled the start of the new Chola style.[2][note 1] This South Indian style is most fully realized both in scale and detail in the Sri Angalaparameshwari Amman Temple by the chola king Malayarasan
