The busy town of Kanchipuram enjoys a reputation for its Hindu temples and handwoven silk saris. This small town ranks among Hinduism's most important spiritual destinations because of its temples dating back to the Pallava, Chola, and Vijayanagar eras. In fact, it served as the capital of the Pallava Kingdom between the 4th and 10th centuries. And while it was also a center for Buddhism, no remnants of that history remain. Most tours of Kanchipuram will include visits to the remaining ancient temples, as well as shopping for silk saris at wholesale prices. Before you visit India, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
