About the Author

Kanchipuram is one of the important urban centres in Tondaimandalam (now in Tamil Nadu state) in the southern part of India from the very beginning. The river Vegavathi and Palar are important rivers systems in the area. During 2006 and 2008 field seasons archaeological excavations were conducted by the SCSVMV University team at the Palar and Vegavathi river basin, near Kanchipuram. Many new socio cultural traits have been noticed in this area. Hundreds of Terracotta rings were traced from the dried channel of river Vegavathi.


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. The present city is situated a little bit away from the existed dried channels, on the northern bank of the river Vegavati.
