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 Chola Dynasty temple is a must for all travellers to kanchipuram. I recom Mr S Shiva(9380113523) as a guide and auto driver. Rs 500 for the entire tour of the temple city

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 !

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.
