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.
Get out of town with these interesting Madurai side-trips: Palani Murugan Temple (in Palani) and Karpagavinayagar Temple (in Karaikudi). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple, gain insight with a tour of cultural highlights, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and see the interesting displays at Gandhi Memorial Museum.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Madurai travel itinerary planner.

In October in Madurai, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
