    To Kanchipuram, we visited the Devarajaswami Temple, as donation and right to camera input is paid as in almost all the temples in the India. Is dedicated to Vishnu and was built during the reign of the vijayanagar. It has a huge pond where also there are two buildings (temples). The columns and all its ornamentation are precious, an internal guide shows us a huge chain carved from a single block of stone which can be seen hanging in a corner of the temple. There is a Hall of ceremonies is held where the union of Vishnu with Lakshmi, and a nice patio with 96 beautifully decorated columns. Surrounding part of its carved there are scenes of the Kama Sutra. I recommend a visit.
