Kanchipuram Temple

One of the five holy cities of Hinduism -- and the only one outside the north -- Kanchipuram is home to some of the most exquisite Hindu temples in the entire land.

Partly that's because the country's successive Muslim invaders never controlled much of the south -- and the south was therefore spared the wanton destruction of Hindu temples and monuments that the Muslims perpetrated elsewhere.
