Back to Kanchipuram. (See related pics posted in January of the Varadaraja Perumal Temple at Kanchipuram.) Quite a few of the large temples in Tamil Nadu have the 100-pillar halls referred to as `Nootru Kaal Mandapam' (100-legged halls), and the pillars are profusely carved. The Varadaraja Perumal Temple too has one such hall. Here are a few details from there.
