Madurai Tourism & Travel Guide - Know Before you Go!

Madurai Overview

The sight and smell of tightly bound jasmine flowers, the cold and refreshing drink called jigar thanda, the extremely friendly and hospitable people and the plethora of temples are some of the things that will greet you once you arrive in Madurai. One of the most prominent temple towns, Madurai is the third largest city in Tamil Nadu and one of the oldest cities of the world. Visit Madurai if you have strong spiritual and religious inclinations or if you have an eye for architecture. In both cases Madurai will not disappoint you. Dotted with temples at possibly every nook and corner, the city speak volumes about a bygone era and will necessarily transport you back in time. The intricate work on the temples will leave you awestruck at the amount of effort and precision which has gone into making each gopuram, tank and sculpture. The perfect symmetry of the breathtaking aayara kaal mandapam or the 100 legged mandapam will leave you asking for more. Immersed in culture, the ancient city of Madurai does not disappoint and offers a lot of man-made and artificial attractions in and around the city of Madurai.
