Photographer's Note

The Kailashnatha temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is the oldest temple of Kanchipuram. It was built by the Pallava King Rayasimha in the late 7th century AD and reflects the freshness and simplicity of the early Dravidian style of temple architecture. There are a number of small shrines within this temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvathi (Lord Shiva's consort) and their sons, Ganesh and Murugan.

Near the entrance of the temple, I found these two gorgeous parakeets (Shiva and Parvathi?) giving relief to the magnificent rock carvings.
