Inside Madurai Temple

The Meenakshi-Sundareswarar temple, which stands today as one of India's cultural and architectural landmarks, was originally built by the early if not mythic Pandya King Kulasekara. The ancient city of Madurai was supposed to be laid out in a lotus-like formation with the temple at the center and streets and main thoroughfares layered one after the other in a concentric fashion. The streets are narrow and small, proving that it's an ancient city.


The inner sanctum sanctorum is more than 3500 years old, and the outer walls and external construction are about 1500-2000 years old. The complex is in around 45 acres and the temple is a massive structure measuring 254 by 237 meters. The temple is surrounded by 12 towers, the tallest of which, the famous Southern tower, rises to over 170 ft high.

  1. Do you mind telling me how long it takes to travel from Chennai to Madurai, and by which means of transport would it be safe and convenient?

  2. @ Jinx- it would take around 7-8 hours by Road to travel from Chennai to Madurai but I would suggest the best mode of travel would be Train as it's economical and comfortable.

  8. Hello my name is Miss joan, I’m from uk. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing oscar, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly. I found consultant. Dr Ishvara and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Several days later, my phone rang. oscar was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you a wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be.” you can contact the spell caster on– ishvaratemple@yahoo.com he’s very nice and great.
