Event Description

We are privileged to live close to the legendary Kanchi Kailasanathar temple built by Pallavas during 7th century!
Well suited place for our weekend sketching when most of us are working on the theme 'Indian Heritage and Culture' for Mylapore fest (check this Thread for more details:

See you there by 10 am!
We will follow the same transport model that we did for Maamallapuram. Come in your own transport. If you have space in your car/ bike let other join you. We have good bus connection from Chennai too. If required people can join together and book a cab and go. Let us know.

It is an ASI site. We might have objections to sketch inside. Some how we do not expect much objection in this temple! believe me :-)

Lets meet by 12:30 pm at the park behind the temple. Let try to sketch till 4 or 5 pm and have fun! Interested people can explore other temples and nearby places too.

It has been a few weeks since I attended a CWA sketching event and I am looking forward to this Sunday.

Revathy...thank you for the welcome. This is a location that has been in our sights for a long time and I am sure we will all enjoy this as a sketching venue.

Prabha...I am sorry that you will be missing this event. We will miss you too.

Nithya & I plan to travel by car along with GS. We propose to leave home (Thiruvanmiyur) at 7:30 am and travel via Tambaram. There will be room for only one more person in the car (since we will also have a driver). If anyone would like to join us please let me know. We can work out the pick-up point.

The temple is open for tourist whole day, only the main shrine is closed by 12:00 to 4:00.

Love this temple and also the Vaijunta perumal- which is reputedly equally ancient.

But this one is truly beautiful.

Looking forard to this very very much.

The earlier we can get there the most temples close by 12 noon.

Thismay not if its ASI?We can sketch the gardens and from outside too!
