    within walking distance from the kancheepuram temple is the kamakshi temple dedicated to parvathy.This is smaller in comparison but equally elaborate and has a gold covered dome.

    This step well is adjacent to the Varadaraja gate temple. The small shrines in the well are all dedicated -- as is the entire complex -- to Vishnu.

    Bull Shrine

    This small, modern shrine is adjacent to the main Kailasanatha temple. Having been gored by a bull several days earlier (in Jaipur), I did not worship here.
