Kailasanathar Kovil

Here are the few of the photographs taken at Kailasanathar Kovil at Kanchipuram. It was built by Pallavas in the early 8th century CE it is famous for its splendid vimnaha and contails numerous panels showing lord siva as Natarajar in numerous postures (from Wikipedia)

The temple is now under ASI and it is being renovated. Painful to see cement plasting over infinite beauty of sand stone sculptures. Even more painful is to see the graffiti like Kumar etc scribbled..



Here is engraving of this temple by J.Storer after a picture by H.Salt, published in George Viscount Vaentia’s voyages and Travels. 1811. Copper engraved print with recent hand colour.
