Kanchipuram is one of the important cities in the southern part of India from the very beginning. The region where it is situated was generally known as Tondainadu or Tondainandulam, at present in Tamil Nadu state, near Chennai. The temple city has many other names. Some of them are - Pralaya Sindhu, Brahmapuram, Sivapuram, Vishnupuram, Satyavratakshetra, Muktishetram, Kamakkottam, Adipeetham, and so on. Like all ancient cities, Kanchipuram is also situated on the banks of river, Palar and Vegavati. These are rain fed subterranean rivers and now with rare visible flow of water.
