Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / Madurai District / Madurai / Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple
Visit the vast complex of Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple, a marvel of South Indian architecture sprawled over 6 ha (15 ac). Dedicated to Meenakshi, an avatar of Parvati and a warrior goddess, the current 27-temple complex dates back to the 17th century. Approach the temple through the surrounding pedestrian-only streets, admire its towering pillars, and visit the sacred “golden lotus” pond. Although the main shrine is only open to Hindus, you can explore the rest of the temple premises. Remember to dress modestly as the staff enforce strict wardrobe rules.

Beautiful and ancient temple... This time we spent a lot of time inside enjoying and learning the stories from the sculptures and paintings...
