About Travel to Madurai


With a population of just over 1 million residents, Madurai is the third largest city in Tamil Nadu state. The city of Madurai is dominated by the Arulmigu Meenakshi Sundareshwarar Temple, which is its main tourist attraction. The Arulmigu Meenakshi Sundareshwarar Temple was completed in the early 13th Century and covers an area of 57,000 sqm. The Arulmigu Meenakshi Sundareshwarar Temple is surrounded by a high fortified outer wall with four impressively large gopura entrance towers. These four large gopura towers are some of the most impressive examples of this type of architecture anywhere and the Arulmigu Meenakshi Sundareshwarar Temple is one of the finest examples of Tamil architecture in India, which is all the more impressive for being a fully functional and very busy place of worship.
