3 Night / 4 Days
Madurai- a city that has been in existence for millennia, a city that can be compared to ancient Rome, a city that offers a glimpse into the soul of Tamil Nadu. Madurai truly is the essence of this South Indian state where the legends and myths of ancient Sanskrit epics come to life. The city, one of the oldest in the country, also reflects everything that screams ‘India!’ in this modern age. With the time-honoured Meenakshi Amman Temple at its center, life in Madurai is driven by a booming IT sector. The city, which is the cultural headquarters of Tamil Nadu, is also home to a number of industries like automobile, rubber and granite manufacturing. With the sprawling and magnificent Thirumalai Nayak Palace, Mariamman Teppakulam, Alagar Koil and marvellously built Thirupparankundram Temple, it is no wonder that Madurai is often called Athens of the East. With a glorious history that can rival that of Greece and packed with energy, the city provides an excitement only a truly Indian city can offer. Madurai is a mine of stories, both old and new, waiting to be discovered by the curious traveller.
