  • 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.

  • This temple, dedicated to Vishnu, built by the Chola merit a visit: the room of marriages in the 100 (96) pillars carved animal monsters, mythical, sculptures of men the Parrot to the Peacock. Every angle there admire cut channels of a block in the stone. Scenes from the Kamatra Sutra on the right side. On the left on the roof not to miss a cat trying to watch a pigeon, a little to the left, he is trying to eat! All the 40 years, we empty the water in the basin to reveal a huge statue in wood of Vishnu, worshipped for 48 days next celebration in 2018.
