Kanchipuram

Kanchipuram has vivid charms which make it an all rounder holiday destination. From spiritual hubs to historical monuments, from cultural wonders to entertainment zones, this city of Tamil Nadu pampers you with its vivid charms. It was once the capital of the Pallavas, Cholas and the Vijayanagar rulers.

History of Kanchipuram is magnificent and can be explored by taking a journey through its marvellous list of temples which earned it the title of the Golden City of a Thousand Temples. 

Ekambareswarar Temple of Kanchipuram is nothing less than a miracle. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and greets pilgrims from all over the world. The temple underwent many transformations since its construction. The present temple which you see today was done in1509 by Krishnadevaraya, the legendary Vijayanagar King. It features life size structure with 40 feet tall doors. The architectural style of the temple shows the splendour of that era.  Kamakshi Amman Temple is another must visit temple of Kanchipuram where Goddess Shakti is worshipped. Its gold plated main tower and shimmering chariot remain its central attractions. The temple dates back to the 7th century and has a gallery too showcasing life history of Adisankaracharya.

Kailasanathar Temple also remains on the itinerary of every traveller visiting Kanchipuram. Belonging to the 8th century, this temple catches the attention of visitors with its unmatched arts and architecture.

Kanchipuram beautifully represents the cultures and traditions of Tamil Nadu which can be seen by visiting Kanchi Kudil, a 90 year old house. It is a beautifully preserved ancestral house where you can see a glimpse of entire town and its specialties. Visit here to explore its cultural richness and age old heritage. Many cultural programs are organised here during evening hours sharing tales about how art flourished here in the ancient period.   

For soaking under the richness of flora and fauna, a visit to the Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary is must. The Sanctuary is home to some beautiful birds that flock here from all parts of the world. Grab your camera and explore its 74 acres of land to capture migratory birds between the months of October and March.
