Kanjeevaram silk sarees have their roots in the Chola dynasty when the ruler Krishna Deva Raya kick-started the production and trade of silk. This is why these sarees are often associated with a sense of royalty. Considered the epitome of sophistication, Kanjeevaram sarees are as big a staple in South Indian weddings as temple jewellery, which is one of the many reasons that the two are often clubbed together.
