Madurai is famous for Meenakshi temple, temple is dedicated to Hindu Godess Parvati know as Meenakshi,  temple is located in main Madurai city, one can reach here by train as well as by air, I’ve been there twice, once by train and recently by road from Munnar, Kerala.

Meenakshi temple is worth seeing, beautiful colorful corridors, pillars, sculptures, the holy tank in the middle of the temple with a golden pillar and a golden lotus flower, the temple have four entrances called as north tower, east tower, west tower & south tower.
