Travel Tips for Kanchipuram

Atthigiri-Varathraja perumal temple pond.

by radz


The pic you can see Varathraja perumal temple pond,its called "Atthigiri",it means Elephant Mountain.

This tank itself houses y shrine of Atthigiri Varadar,the deity was made by "Atthi" wood.
The interesting thing about this tank is,the deity is not kept for public view.Can you see the center of the tank,one samll hall,there it was kept,i mean under the water.
Once in 40 years,the tank water pumped out,the deity was taken for public display.They keep display for 48 days.After 48days they again keep under water.The tank was filled by rainwater.It rains TO FILL THE TANK :))..
The last time the event was 1979,the next it will be 2019.

"My guide was born here"

I was lucky to have my friend Ashwin [VT: A4ASHWIN] as a guide. Kanchipuram is Ashwin's birthplace. He showed me his childhood's home, and met an aquainted from past history. Unsurprisingly, to find a good, homely southern breakfast was 'a piece of cake' for him [check "restaurant" tip].
We visited inside 2 of many temples in the town.
