Kamakshi amman temple is the Emrald among the gems in Kanchipuram. You just cant take your eyes off amman when u are inside the temple. Very good maintenance by the kanchi kamakoti peetha.

This is near to the Ekambereshwar temple in which Lord Shiva's consort Goddess Parvathi is the main deity. This temple too is more than a 1000 year old creation. Must visit place in Kanchipuram.
