The temple is thousands of years old, the present construction being a rebuilt one by the Pallavas around 600 AD. The temple however shows the works of possibly any dynasty that ruled Kanchipuram. The 172-foot Raja Gopuram is a wonderful piece of architectural wonder that the Vijayanagara Empire has created. The Cholas contributed architecturally to the temple too.
