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.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Sat): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Alagarkoil Temple and Shrine, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple, and then step into the grandiose world of Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal. Here are some ideas for day two: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, examine the collection at Gandhi Memorial Museum, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Pazhamudhir Solai.

Plan my Madurai trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Bengaluru to Madurai is an approximately 3.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Bengaluru in December, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 25°C in Madurai. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) to allow enough time to take a train to Rameswaram.
