    I will be in Tamil Nadu, visiting some of the famous temples and seeing the beaches there. I am quite fond of getting attire from different states and in Tamil Nadu silk sarees are very popular especially the saris from Kanchipuram.

    I would like to know where the best place to buy silk sarees in Kanchipuram is?

    I would like the name of a shop which does not rip you off, as being from outside of Tamil Nadu and not speaking the local language there are high chances that I would be overcharged.

    Hi @Amrita.

    One very good place where you can get silk sarees in Kanchipuram is Sri Seethalakshmi silks. According to some reviews, the managers of this place are trustworthy so you are not likely to face any problems with duplicate designs and cheating. If you decide to visit the store, you may ask for the 5 nool thari which is of a heavy and thick style. You may also choose to purchase the 3 nool thari which is lighter in style. The patterns and collections at this store are generally heavy and traditional. The store caters primarily to bridal needs.

    * The location is: 436 Gandhi Road, Kancheepuram and their telephone number is: +91 97901 85656

    --> This is a link to their Facebook page where you can find more details and pictures of design patterns: Sri Seethalakshmi Silks
