The following are the photographs of Temple & Towers of Kancheepuram. Kancheepuram is known as a Temple Town where you’ll find scores of temples in every nook and corner of the city. It is dated back to Pallava Kingdom whose Capital city was Kancheepuram. (This town has two most vital sects of Brahmins, viz. Srivaishnavas – the followers of Visishtathvaitham and Shivaites – the followers of Dvaitam.) Even today, these two sects dominantly display their faith with traditional hymes.
These photographs shows only the Vimanam, Temple Gopuram and its intricate craftsmanship of the yester years. All the Srivaishnava Temples are of very rich in sculptures, divine in nature and everlasting stone carvings. These photographs are a treasure I obtained from Sri. N. Raghunathan, IAS.
I am thankful to Mr. N. Raghunathan, IAS (of Navalpakkam Patrchariar) for providing the above rarer than rarest photographs to share with general public. It is a treasure indeed to have these photographs in one’s desktop!
