Photographer's Note

Boasting many temples, several with tall and elaborate gopurams, which you can see towering over the palm trees, Kanchipuram is one of the oldest cities in South India. It was during the reign of Pallava dynasty, from the 4th to the 9th centuries that Kanchipuram attained its limelight.

Today it is one of a number of towns in Tamil Nadu which are on the temple trail.
