Kanchipuram -City of TemplePicture a land of legends and dreams, a land of Gods and Goddesses, of kings and thinkers, of temples and exotic silks. And then come to Kanchipuram, one of the seven holy cities of the Hindus, where a myriad intricately carved temples and reams of elaborately woven silk complete the picture. Once the ‘City of a Thousand Temples,’ only 126 temples remain in this bustling town. Kanchipuram was prominent as the capital of the glorious Cholas, Pallavas and the Vijayanagar dynasties of the south, rulers who worshipped Shiva, Parvati and Vishnu and dedicated a thousand temples to these Gods.

As far as shopping goes, it must be silks and more silks! The famous Kanjeevaram silks are from worms bred purely on mulberry and the end product is spectacularly shot through with gold zari threads. Visit a silk weaving center such as the Handloom Weavers' Service Centre on Railway Station Road. Or walk down the dusty lanes and narrow gullies where more than 5000 families are involved in this ancient craft. Your memories of Kanchipuram are bound to be woven in silk!

Places of Attractions
  • Kailasanathar Temple
    It is similar to the ancient Dravidian Style; the temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Kailasanathar Temple was built by king Rajasimha in 7th century; there are 58 small shrines around the main shrine formed in the honour of Shiva, Parvati, Murugan and Ganesh.
  • Ekambaranathar Temple
    This is the largest temple in Kanchipuram, it covers approximately 12 hectare. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Later, the temple was renovated by Cholas and Vijayanagra Kings. There is a mango tree within the temple compound, which is believed to be 3500 years old, the four branches represents the four Vedas. The tree still bears fruits.
  • Sri Vardaraja Perumal Temple
    The highlight of the Vishnu Kanchi is the temple of Varadarajaswamy, atop the Hastigiri or Elephant Hill. The Vijayanagar kings constructed this temple covering an area of about 23 acres. The sculptural beauty of the pillars is amazing as are the ornamental rings carved out of single stone at the Four Corners of the mandapam in the form of a chain.
Kailasanathar TempleKanchipuram is well connected by road and rail to Chennai, which is the nearest domestic and international airport 75 km away. Kanchipuram is well placed on the road network. Inexpensive and clean buses ply frequently between Kanchipuram and major cities like Bangalore and Chennai. The roads are smooth, and renting a car is a good option.

The best time to visit is in the early part of the year, from January to March when it is pleasantly cool - temperatures average at between 20-28° C. This is also a good time to see migratory birds at the Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary 60 km from Kanchipuram. The rath (chariot) procession of the gods takes place in January too.
