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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple and Alagarkoil Temple and Shrine. Change things up with these side-trips from Madurai: Sathuragiri Shiva Temple (in Srivilliputhur), Palani Murugan Temple (in Palani) and Karpagavinayagar Temple (in Karaikudi). The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Gandhi Memorial Museum, gain a rich perspective with a tour of cultural highlights, explore the historical opulence of Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Mary's Cathedral Church.
