Discover the Meenakshi Amman Temple. On any given day, nearly 10,000 people pass through Meenakshi Amman to take full baths and go to temple. Soak in the atmosphere of people prostrating themselves in front of the statues of Ganesh, buying colorful bangles, making offerings to different Hindu gods, and drawing floral patterns called kolams with rice flour on the floor.
Visit the Thirumalai Nayak Palace, built in 1636 by King Thirumalai, the first and greatest of the Nayakas rulers. Madurai was the principal seat of the Nayakas for two hundred years, from the 16th to the 18th century. While only a quarter of the original structure remains, the palace is a showcase of the fusion and ingenuity that characterized Tamil design. The palace possesses the elaborate, life-like sculptures that are a hallmark of Dravidian architecture, as well as the deep, pronounced arches and domes popular in Islamic styles of design.
