Kanchipuram continued to be a religious center after the Pallava period ended at the end of the 9th c AD. There are a number of Chola-era temples around town. The Jwarahareshwar temple is a 12th c example that has not been expanded upon or become part of a larger temple complex. It has an unusual elliptical-shaped sanctum.
