  • Though small structure comparison to other but lot of information about Pallavas. This temple is in Vimana style in contrast to Gopuram style of Chola. The attendant Mr Sampath was very helpful and explained everything in quite details like how there are three rows of carvings - king and family in lowest row, God/ Goddesses in middle and demons in top rows. How different avatars to Vishnu are carved around. Three stage are with Vishnu in sleeping, standing and sitting pose. How carving of Chinese traveller Huan Sung is included. How there are carvings with Brahma and Shiva worshipping Vishnu are done, so on Another special is that temple share pond with Mosque.
  • This is one divya desham which is under Archeological Survey Of India. Beautiful darshan. Mind blowing carving in stone inside temple. I have attached few pics of the same
  • A temple of great yore and archeological importance. Great murals and stucco works that are still an enigma to both the devotees and historians. The temple is shrunk in landscape, thanks to abutting encroachments. The main shrine has somehow stood the test of time and vandalism. Now maintained by archeology department. The office of the archeological survey of India's Kancheepuram field officer is in the premises. The staff would offer adequate insight into the pre eminence of this temple, if one could get an interaction with them. The Lord is in three states viz., standing, sitting and lying postures. Only the standing deity could be worshipped daily. The other forms could be worshipped on specific days of Tamil calendar. The priest would give adequate details. Centrally located in Kancheepuram town, in a sone's throw from bus stand and rail station (old Kancheepuram)
  • Great work of Pallavas - the stories depicted as sculptures in the panels supposedly link Pallavas with Cambodia and Khmer art
