KANCHIPURAM

KAILASANATH TEMPLE

Another Saivate temple that attracts crowds more is Kailasanatha temple built during the reign of Pallavas.  Credit goes to Rajasimha.  And it was his monumental contribution to art and religion.  The image of Ardhanareeswar has the greatest attraction.  Beautifully drawn murals adorn the alcoves around the perimeter walls.  Its sculptural excellence delights the viewers. Visitors direct their steps next to Kachapeswara temple.  It has beautiful images.  It is here Lord Maha Vishnu worshipped Siva in the form of tortoise.  It is a worthy sight and wrings veneration. 

There is another famous temple dedicated to Subrahmanya and it goes by the name of Kumarakotttam.  One more oddity that the visitors come across in the city is the temple for Chitragupta; the trust-worthy Recorder of Yama, the God of Death.  As it is only one of its kind in the entire Bharat, it draws the visitors and receives veneration.  Seeing this marvels and also the Buddhist Sangharamams now in ruins, the visitors go to Vishnu Kanchi and integral part of Kanchi.
