nothing specially to add the gold/old temples is the feast to the eyes to the humanbeings left by the great pallavas. the roads are wide and the cost of food is very less and the quality is also good.

Built in 1734 it is the town's main Vishnu temple, perhaps standing on the site where Bramha performed he sacrifice to invoke Vishnu. The temple has a gold necklace perhaps presented by Robert Clive !

An ancient and wonderfully designed vast temple complex. The clergy and staff is not really helpful or willing to guide unless you tip. The sharp contrast is to the Ekambareshwar temple

This is one of the largest temples in Kanchipuram and located a bit away from the main city bus stand. This temple is famous for Gold and silver Lizard statues.

This temple is very famous for the huge lizards made of gold and silver. I am not a huge fan of temples and also not superstitious. Hence I did not find anything interesting much here. However lot of people visit here if they have belief as it is said to cure "palli-dosham".

Very grand temple with extremely grand space inside. The temple is famous for its gold n silver lizards on the ceiling, apparently considered holy because it helps cure "balli-dosham". You go there to see those and as legend has it, touch those. But the temple management, is practically forcing people to visit all other shrines in the temple before you reach the lizards in the far corner of the premises. No sign-boards indicate which shrine you are entering, and you cant skip the queue directly to see the lizards. While rush in any Hindu temple of yore is expected on a weekend, there are absolutely no amenities like drinking water / toilets as you keep veering in the unending queues which are practically more than 2-3 kms long zig-zagging within the temple premises, and as you enter each garbha-gudi thinking you will see the lizards, you end up seeing yet another statue of Lord Vishnu. There are no volunteers other than at the Garbha-gudis, whose job is only to rush you out, and the temple management has scant respect for devotees lining up carrying their kids in hand, as they have not worried about arranging atleast water alongside the queues. The queues too are practically squeezed between pillars rather than use the space and let them be airy and uncluttered. By the time you reach the Lord, you are so tired, irritated and famished, that you practically end up feeling relieved that it is over, rather than feeling good that you got a "darshan". The metal staircase to reach the lizard-figurines on the ceiling is precarious, and old people rather watch-out. The gurad standing below is no help as he just keeps banging his stick on the metal staircase with a loud thud (not sure what he is wanting to convey by that and what good it serves other than disturbing the concentration of the commoners atop the staircase who may fall due to imbalance). The absolute apathy and lack of concern of the management is the only thing that I would remember for long. Better to be at home and pray with a calm and clean heart, than go through looping queues for hours in the heat hoping that you wont succumb to dehydration. The whole experience smacks of utter disregard for the devotees and high-handedness of the temple management, who have scant respect or concern for the common man.

One of the biggest temple which was built during king chola period. The shrine of Varadarajaswamy is on a small hillock 10m tall and a flight of 24 steps, termed "Hasthagiri".
