Kanchipuram, apart from its fame for embroidery, silk, and textiles, is also widely known as a religious tourist destination. There are plenty of temples that attract thousands of worshipers throughout the year.

Here are some of the temples that are frequently visited by pilgrims: Ekambareshwara Temple, Kailasanatha Temple, Vardharaja Perumal Temple, Kamakshi Amman Temple, Vaikuntha Perumal Temple, Sri Ulagalandar Temple, Chitragupta Swamy Temple, Devaraja Swami Temple, Kachapeshwarar Temple, Thennangur Panduranga Temple, etc. There is also a Buddhist worship centre called the Bodhi Dharma temple in addition to a Jain temple. There are also a couple of museums and forts that you can visit such as Alamparai Fort and Dutch Fort. But what you should as a must-see activity is related to Kanchipuramas fame for silk and textiles a try to see the process of silk making at some of the local factories there. Also, walk around the different local markets and shops to see huge collections of Kanchipuram Sarees.
