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.
Step out of Madurai with an excursion to Palani Murugan Temple in Palani--about 1h 45 min away. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple, admire the landmark architecture of Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal, get the lay of the land with Walking tours, and savor the flavors at Food & Drink.

Expect a daytime high around 34°C in December, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
