Huge temple with a great history. Valuable information about the deities. Archakas are well informed and share great info about the lords. Worth seeing the 3500 year old Mango tree.

An amazing temple to visit - Great carvings and a nice atmosphere. Has a thriving pilgrim attendance so can get busy. Would be fantastic to see it when all the Lingam lights are lit
This was the first temple we visited on this tour of India and I have to say I found it absolutely fascinating. It's mighty entrance dates from 1509 and the whole temple has that historic feel to it. It feels genuine unlike on or two others we visited which seemed too touristy. Here you get a sense of devotion and... 更多
Slightly off the beaten track in Kanchipuram this temple is well worth a visit. Generally quite quiet Westerners might find they attract their own crowd of sightseers!

There are five Shiva temples for each of the five elements - land, water, air, sky and fire. This one stands for the element earth and the temple has one of the largest gopuram (gateway tower). It is one and half hours drive from Chennai and the temple receives high footfall during special days.
Really blessed to having seen this place. One of the ancient temples. You'll be surprised to see a 3500 year old mango tree still riping fruits of 4 types. Seek the blessings of the Lord Ekambareswara Swamy - Saikata Lingam - one of the panchalingas. Stunning and astounding experience. Feeling devotional

This is the place where Godess Parvathi is said to have worshipped and married God Shiva by making a Sivalinga out of earth. So the soil or earth gets the significance. The Mango tree just behind the sanctum Santorum is said to be the heritage... 更多
