Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Kanchipuram District / Kanchipuram / Ekambareswarar Temple

Explore the 9.3 hectare (23 acre) grounds, with a thousand-pillared pavilion and five courtyards, each with its own character. Look out for the 3,500-year-old sthala-virutcham, or temple tree, whose four branches reputedly bear four types of mango.
