My Kancheepuram Temple tour - 2

I'm sorry for such a long gap to post the remaining part.  I had some personal commitments and was out of the country..

Back to Kancheepuram
Our next visit was to Kanchi Varadaraja Perumal temple, dedicated to Lord Vishnu. This temple is also known as Thiru Parameswara Vinnagaram Temple, which was about 6 kms away from Kanchi Kailasanathar Temple. Prakash, our auto driver, suggested that we should reach there before its closure time. (8 pm). Though there was some rush we made it for the darshan and it was some special day (Ekadashi) in the temple. Since it was evening I couldn't get some good pictures to post here.

This is also an ancient temple built by Pallavas in the 8th century.  The devotees have to climb a couple of steps to reach the sanctum sanctorum.

The next day, Prakash was there at sharp 6 a.m. to take us to start our temple tours. Our first visit was to Sri Ekambareswarar …
