Ekaambar Naath Temple is one of the oldest temples in the city of Kaancheepuram, in Tamilnaadu. The architecture of this Temple is amazing. The Gopuram of this Temple stands as a massive landmark, spanning a height of 57 meters - one of the tallest in South India. The vast Temple premises introduce you to many wonders, one after another.
The first is the "Aayiram Kaal Mandapam" or the hallway with a thousand pillars. The next is the array of 1008 Shiv Ling that decorate the inner walls of the temple. The most important, of course, is the "Sthal-virutcham", a 3500 year old mango tree whose branches give four different types of mangoes. This temple bears the work of practically every dynasty which ruled Kaancheepuram.
