Enchantingly Woven | Kanchipuram Silk Saree – TAMIL NADU TOURISM

The famous Kanchipuram silk saree is a traditionally handwoven saree made out of mulberry silk, made in the bylanes of the town of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu. Kanchipuram has magnificent temples featuring distinct architecture and is also known as the “City of a Thousand Temples”. Historically, the origin of Kanchipuram Silk can be traced back to around 400 years ago. The rich temple culture and the use and practice of wearing silk in rituals, weddings, and ceremonies in this quaint old town are said to be the reasons why the weaver communities settled here. Kanchipuram Silk Sarees are popularly referred to as the “Queen of Sarees” because of their lustre, durability, and glimmer from the exquisite zari work.

Tamil Nadu is a place with several distinctive features of tourism where stories never end.
