Madurai 

Madurai - A significant city past to future



From the ancient past, Madurai has its own pride for many reasons. The third Tamil Sangam or "Kadai Sangam" through which the language Tamil got its fame is in Madurai. If Madurai is viewed from a high altitude, we can find that the streets are like concentric squares having the famous Meenakshi temple as the centre. Also the streets are given the names of the Tamil months.

Attractions In & Around

Attractions In & Around
Meenakshi Amman Temple 
Madurai Meenakshiamman Temple was built by the King Kulasekara Pandya, but the entire credit for making the temple as splendid as it is today goes to the Nayaks. The Golden Lotus in Potramaraikulam, the magnificient Gopurams with sculptures and themandapams are worth to be seen.
Azhagar Temple 

Lord Paramaswamy is the deity here, the brother of Goddess Meenakshi. The shrine of this deity is opened only once in a year. The processional idol is known in the name of  Alagar or Sundararajan. This idol was made in ancient times and it is pure gold. In this temple, there are shrines for Goddess Kalyana Sundaravalli, Goddess Andal, Sudarshanar and Yoga Narasimha. During the Chittirai festival, Lord Alagar goes to Madurai to see the divine wedding of Meenakshi with Sundareswarar. Other festivals grandly celebrated here are Aadi Perukku and Panguni Uthiram.

Thirumalai Nayakar Palace 

The King Thirumalai Nayak was the builder of this wonderful palace. The Pudumandapam near the Meenakshiamman temple was also built by him. He also deserves the pride of digging out the Vandiyur Teppakkulam. It is said that the palace was initially four times vast compared to the present one. The Swarga Vilasam exemplifies the skills of the ancient builders. Everyday, the epic Silappathikaram & the history of Thirumalai Nayak are enacted here for the visitors.

Gandhi Museum 

It is of great value to our family if we visit this museum to know more about the "Father of our Nation" rather than reading books. TheGandhi Memorial Museum has got a Picture Gallery, "The Hall of Relecs", a Research section and an open-air theatre. Exhibits of various handicrafts & Khadi products are arranged for the visitors. A special exhibition demonstrates the Freedom Struggle with more number of illustrations. In the "The Hall of Relecs" Gandhiji's personal belongings (originals and replicas) are preserved. Cultural events are conducted in the theatre for visitors.

Vandiyur Mariamman Temple 
This temple is famous for its Teppakulam(tank) which has a mandapam at its centre where Lord Vignesh resides. This tank receives water from river Vaigai. The Teppakulam Float Festival is celebrated on the Full Moon Day of the Tamil month of Thai which is a spectacular sight to be seen. On that day, the deities float in the Teppakulam in brightly lit up floats & the water seems to be colorful.
Thirupparamkundram 

Situated 6 kms from Madurai, Thirupparamkundram is considered as the first Aarupadai Veedu of Lord Muruga. It is a cave temple. This is the place where Lord Muruga defeated the demon Surapadman and the wedding of Deivayani (daughter of Deivendran) with Lord Muruga took place. This temple is considered as a holy one.

Pazhamudhir Solai 
Among the six places, the hills of Pazhamudir Cholai served as the last padai veedu for Lord Subramanya. This location is formerly known as Solai Malai. Situated near Madurai, this place also acts as a pilgrimage spot.
