kancheepuram is famous for the multitude of temples jostling for space.
Among these siva temple, ekambaranathar temple is famous for the space (40 acres), the architectucture (pallava, chola, vijayanagar) and holiness (one of the seven hindu holy places).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:like Rome ancient archeological wonders elbowing each other for space
  • Cons:climate - unbearably hot
  • In a nutshell:you forget the hot sun once inside the temples _stupendous

    Good page, Aruna. The Kancheepuram Siva temple is quite magnificent. And those silk saris- sari is the most lovely clothing for women. So colourful and always look elegant.
