Silk trail to Kanchipuram from Chennai by Wonder tours

Kanchipuram's oldest temple is its most impressive, not for its size but for its weight of historical presence and the intricacy of its stonework. As much monument as living temple, Kailasanatha is quieter than other temples in town, and has been heavily restored. Dedicated to Shiva, it was built in the 8th century by Pallava king Narasimhavarman II (Rajasimha), who also created Mamallapuram's Shore Temple.

I paid visit to the Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt last Monday. Now the Bridavanam has The Holy Samadhis of both Mahaperiva and Jayendra Saraswathy Swamigal, making it more powerful. A very Divine place and you can feel the vibrations when you sit and meditate there. Daily Poojas are performed as per tradition. A place one must visit to seek the Blessings of The Guru.

This is the one of Peetham of Adi Shankaracharya and it is more than 1200 to 2000 tears old. He was the first pontiff of this madham. Now it became famous because of the Shri Shri Chandrashekhar Saraswati A K A Maha Privar also know as moving GOD on the earth. A Vrindavan has been built in the Madham and people still believe he still listens all your owes and cures it or gives strength to face it. Wirth visiting for the serenity in the place and the solace you get.
