Believed to be at least 1400 years old, the Ekambarantha temple is the largest temple in Kanchipuram and one of the five major Shaivite shrines in the city. The ‘gopuram’ of Ekambareshwar temple looms over the northern skyline of the town and is possibly among the tallest in India. The 25 acres of land on which the temple stands contains five spacious courtyards and a hall with a thousand carved pillars. A legend associated with this temple revolves around a mango tree in the compound that is believed to be around 3,500 years old, that produces four different types of mangoes - perhaps the result of grafting at some point.
