    Hi, i need ur help. My best friend's SIL is getting married. my friend wants to get a silk saree for herself to wear for this occasion. And she wants to get this sari from kanchipuram. Though i told her that T.nagar is the best choice, she badly wants to visit kanchipuram. Since all her relatives buy sarees from kanchi, i guess she too is curious to go there. Since she is not in good terms with her MIL's house, she does not want to ask them for the address. So we decided to go to gether. i know the names of the co-operative stores like Murugan and Amman and so on. But i want to know the name of the street in which these shops are put up and how far it is from the kanchi railway or the bus station. And can someone kindly tell me how to go from chennai by train and is there any special trains from Beach or central to Kanchi. IF u r an expert in buying silk sarees, please suggest me some tips as she wants to get an grand one.thanks.

    Hi,

    You have busses from Tambaram. Come by train from beach station to Tambaram Station. Come out and you will find lots of busses to go to Kanchi. Also you have trains at allotted timings to go to Kancheepuram. But the train timings will not suit you I beleive.

    I am sorry I am not so sure of the street but as you have said that you know the names of the co-op soceities and as you have given it just give me a day's time I will enquire and post it here.

    You could also call up 183 of the BSNL and enquire the address and phone number telling the names. Or call up 26444444 and can enquire them too.

    dear radhika,
    i had done silk saree business in bangalore and i found varadashah and sons very good but the one with whom i did business is very much in chennai and next to kumaran silk area why dont u get it from there it self, all things that are manufactured are taken there, there is no price difference much, their sarees are heavy and very good in combinations, i used to pick up the best, whether it was silk thread work or simple zari's with a lot of color combinations, nowadays no one makes silver zari, so it would be good to invest on something that has a lot of work in silk thread and a small line of zari to enhance the work, these large borders of zari do curl up as u use and loose their shine in the long run. so good combi of colors and design work done in thread gives more shelf life to saree, never dry clean them, always use soap kai if stained, light warm water and soap kai will preserve the silk, nowadays we have softener, and liquid soap which is the solution for all these, as it is a natural fibre u need to take care well, if u dry clean all those chemicals damage the sarees for good..sunkan
