Kanchipuram: Thousands of devotees thronged the streets of Kanchipuram early morning when South Indian megastar Rajinikanth along with his wife Latha Rajinikanth was here to offer prayer at Sri Athi Varadaraja Swamy temple in Tamil Nadu's Kanchipuram city.

The moment his car reached the temple gate, several fans of Thalaivaa gathered around his car just to catch a glimpse of their favourite actor. He even received a warm welcome by the priests and devotees when he entered the temple area.

Rajinikanth was seen worshipping the deity Lord Athi Varadar where he also offered flowers to the idol. Later, after the Vedic chants and completion of the puja, he was presented with a Kanchipuram Silk saree, garlands and dainty by the temple priests as a symbol of blessing from the Lord Athi Varadar.
