Visit Kanchipuram, or ‘Golden City,’ considered one of the seven sacred cities in the country. Once known as the ‘City of a Thousand Temples,’ there are still over 100 shrines in Kanchipuram, including the ‘living’ temples where the practice of worship continues. Visit the 1,200-year-old Kailasanatha Temple and marvel at the seventh- and eighth-century paintings, before seeing the intricately sculpted tower of the 16th-century Ekambareswara Temple. The city is also famed for its tradition of silk weaving, and you’ll have the opportunity to see silk saris being hand loomed.
