Overview

A trip to Tamil Nadu is not complete without visiting the sacred city of Kanchipuram known around the world for its glorious temples and grand sarees. Kanchipuram was the Hindu Temple Complex built by Chola Dynasty and is one of Hinduism's seven most sacred cities. 


This "Golden city of a Thousand Temples" dates back to the early Cholas in the 7th century A.D! Only around 70 temples of the original 1000 old temple complex are still intact and the most famous of them is the Kailasanatha Temple built with sandstone in the early seventh century A.D. Kanchipuram is famous for its silk weaving and a visit to the nearby villages to see the craftsmen at work on their looms is rewarding experience.


The classic Indian attire for women is a saree and there is no grander drape than a Kanchipuram drape. Ranging in length from 6-12 yards long, the sarees come in a variety of fabrics like cotton, georgette, chiffon. However the Kanchipuram USP is silk and these hand-woven sarees make for a great gift.
