Dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva and constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture - between 685 and 705 AD by rulers from the Pallava dynasty, many experts believe that this is most ancient temple in Kanchipuram. It is also believed that the design of the temple served as a prototype for later temples in South India.
Numerous hrines depicting the diverse manifestations of Shiva and unique (for the time) frescoes describing his legends, adorn the inner walls of the sanctum. The shrines are enclosed within niches of the outer passage, facing devotees as they circumambulate the sanctum - a feature which became typical of latter day temples, either as sculptures of the presiding deity or painted as wall frescoes.
