Meenakshi Temple

Meenakshi Temple is one of the Sundareswarar most fascinating temples of South India. Its architectural beauty never fails to win the heart of tourists who come here from afar. This temple is located in the historic city of Madurai which boasts its own glorious history. This nine-story Hindu temple dates from the 12th century and is dedicated to the goddess Meenakshi (Parvati) and Siva.

The12 gopurams majestically painted walls adorned with paintings and sculptures, exquisite carvings and wonderful pillared halls are the major attractions of the temple.

Visit the Golden Lotus tank in the temple complex where devotees bathe before entering the temple for the worship of the goddess. There is a legend attached to it that Lord Shiva himself created this reservoir. It is also believed that we accumulate good fortune by taking a bath in this tank.

Do not miss the pillars of the temple of music that is too fascinating. These number five pillars were carved from a single stone. When you hit these pillars make sounds.
