Hailed as the 'temple town' and cultural capital of south India, the second largest city in Tamil Nadu traces its roots to more than 2500 years back. It is believed that King Kulasekarar built a huge temple and adorned it with a lotus shaped city around it. The city was named Madhurapuri, which later became Madurai.

Freshen up and by afternoon visit the famous Madurai Meenakshi temple (dedicated to the consort of Lord Shiva with its towering GOPURAMS) - Madurai TempleThere are four entrances to this amazing temple complex set in 6 hectares. Beat some of the stone pillars in the complex with any hard object and feel incredible on hearing sweet metal sounds. The total number of pillars in the temple is a staggering one thousand.
