Kanchipuram, also known as Kanjeevaram or simply Kanchi, is an alluring small town located in the state of Tamil Nadu. Settled on the western river basin of the Palar river the city offers stunning scenic beauty. The city is home to a number of sacred Hindu temples and is often referred to as "City of Temples".
Considered as one of the most pious places among the seven sacred cities in India, Kanchipuram boasts of many beautiful temples that attract pilgrims to the place all through the year. The intricate architecture of the temples represent the rich culture and fine arts of south India. The charming natural beauty blended with the religious allure makes the city a sought after destinations for travelers. Kanchipuram is famed as the weaving center for the premium 'Kanjeevaram silk'.

Kanchi’s temples showcase some of the best in Dravidian architecture, an amalgam of styles introduced by the city’s many rulers over the centuries — the Pallavas, Cholas, Vijayanagara kings and Nayaks. In between, the city also had to reckon with many invasions, when some of the stunning temples were used as garrisons. It was the British who introduced sericulture to Kanchipuram’s weaving community. The legendary Kanchivaram saris have since kept the city’s name glowing like the shimmer of silk.
