Kanchipuram or just Kanchi also attracts a lot of tourists from all the world who are interested in Hinduism or just want to enjoy the marvel of South Indian architecture and grandeur. It is particularly known for being the seat for bearing culture and philosophy. With such an association being made with this city, it only makes sense that this destination has become such an influential centre in these avant-garde times. Kanchi Kamakshi Temple is the highly revered abode of Kamakshi (Goddess Parvathi) - consort of Lord Shiva.
You must also visit Kailasanathar Temple to enjoy its magnificent architecture. The highest, largest and most impressive temple in town, spanning 40 acres and dating back to the Pallava period is the Ekambeshwarar Temple. The Kanchi Mutt holds kutcheris or South Indian classical music concerts in the evenings.
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the temple has been spoken about by Tamil poets who lived in the 2nd century. The temple had undergone many changes since then. During the rule of Pallavas, the original structure was pulled down and new temple was built. During Chola dynasty, the temple was improvised. The temple in its present form was the work of Krishnadevaraya, the most famous Vijayanagar King in the year 1509. The temple is huge and the doors are nearly 40 feet tall.
Goddess Shakti is worshipped in three major cities out of which, Kanchipuram ranks first in importance. The gold plated main tower and the golden chariot are the temple’s special features. The sculptures of the 7th century temple are awe-inspiring. This huge temple is constructed in around 5 acres of land. The temple houses a gallery, which presents the life history of Adisankaracharya.
Belonging to the 8th century, Kailasanathar Temple is one amongst the oldest structures in the city and it is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The construction was commenced by Rajasimha Pallava. His son Mahendra Varma Pallava completed the temple. Pallava kings were famous for their love for architecture and one glance at the temple would suffice to understand the importance they attached to arts and architecture. The stone carvings with intricate and dedicated workings are beyond words.
If you want some time away from man made wonders, you may seek Vedanthangal Bird Sanctuary, which offers delightful views of birds across the world. Considered a bird watcher’s paradise and rightly so, the place would make you a wonderful photographer, if you are already not one. It is located 48 kms from the city. This is ranked amongst the oldest bird sanctuaries in India. Spread over a sprawling 74 acres of land, you will find the views stunning with migratory birds visiting the place from all over the world. The best time to visit the place would be between the months of October and March.
