  • The Vaikuntha Peru coloring Temple is one of the oldest temples in Kanchipuram, he is rare by tourists will be visited. The simple Temple is well decorated. The temple was already under the Pallava dynasty built in the 7th century and later expanded. Not all reliefs are in good condition. A lot has been restored. The small temple but worth a visit anyway.

  • very old temple. maintained by archeology dept. *must visit*. great architecture
  • One of the India's greatest and biggest Temple with extraordinary and finest architecture values projecting the Indian culture and traditions.
  • Architecturally significant temple - that survived the rages of time. Built by Nandivarman II, a Parama Bhagavata, this temple is called Parameswara Vinnagaram (Tamil form of the word Vishnu graham). Manga azhwar sang pasurams on this Charming temple while also singing the praise of fellow Bhagavata, the king Nandivarman - who was his friend. In the walls surrounding the sanctum Santorum, there are several wall cravings that depict various forms of Vishnu and the romantic tale of the king Nandivarman, who came all the way from allegedly Cambodia, with his friend Udayachandra and took over the kingship of Pallava dynasty. The beautiful form of Vishnu in seated position, the sculpted walls, the Pallava style lion columns, the circambulatory very unique style of old temples are worth a visit if you want to have a sneak peak of the kanchi style of architecture in early 7th century.
  • Great work of Pallavas - the stories depicted as sculptures in the panels supposedly link Pallavas with Cambodia and Khmer art. One of the Divya Desam temples in Kanchipuram. The temple panels have great stories of Pallava times depicted in stone, sadly, they have been carelessly restored with white cement. Also called Pameswara Vinnagaram.
  • One of the Oldest temple shrine at Kanchi, Archeological spot, fantastic dravidian sculptures and idols, neat pragraha, deity Lord Vishnu
