Kanchipuram associated with Bodhidharma
With the divine blessings of Bodhidharma,
we launch this interactive platform A humble initiative focused on realizing the Re-emergence of Bodhidharma
in his homeland, Kanchipuram.
We have two direct evidences of Kanchipuram associated with Bodhidharma.
One is a relief panel depicting him in the style of a Mahayana monk that we recently (December 2018) discovered
at the Vaikuntha Perumal Temple, Kanchipuram
- an evidence stating the past presence of Bodhidharma in South India.
The second is a record in ancient Chinese literature that describes his homeland in India by three Chinese characters
“香至国” - which means nothing but “Kanchipuram”
