One of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, Madurai sits on the banks of the River Vaigai and serves as a center of Tamil culture.
Popular historic sites such as Sri Meenakshi Temple and Pazhamudhir Solai are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Gandhi Memorial Museum and Alagarkoil Temple and Shrine. Get out of town with these interesting Madurai side-trips: Dindigul (Dindigul Fort, Thadikombu Sri Sownthara Raja Perumal Temple, & more), Kalaiyar Kovil Temple (in Sivaganga) and Palani Murugan Temple (in Palani). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and pause for some serene contemplation at Idaikattur Church.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Madurai trip maker site .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 40°C, and evening lows to 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
