I recently went to quite a few temples in Kanchipuram. The temples I went to are Kamakshi Amman, Ekambareswarar, Kumarakottam, UlagaLandha perumAL (the idol of ulagaLandha perumAL is majestic!) and kailAsanAthar. Till I saw the kailAsanAthar temple, I had no clue about the fact that it was built by the Pallavas in a typical Pallava architectural style. The sculptures there, were all so beautiful. Once I saw the temple, I couldn’t resist taking photos. 🙂 Since I didn’t take my camera with me, I took some photos with my mobile. Here are some:
The main gopuram:
