  • All activities in Madurai are centred around Sri Meenakshi Temple, which is in the heart of the old town and is one of the most stunning living temples in the country. The temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva’s consort Parvati who is known here as Meenakshi. The temple complex is within a high-walled enclosure, at the core of which are the two sanctums surrounded by a number of smaller shrines and grand pillared halls. Especially impressive are the 12 gopurams. Their soaring towers rise from solid granite bases, and are covered with stucco figures of dieties, mythical animals and monsters painted in vivid colours.
  • You may visit the temple any time of the day but the evening temple ceremony is spectacular.
  • A street food tour of Madurai is part of this experience. The food tour will be organised before or after the temple visit depending on the time you are visiting it. Walk down the streets of Madurai and sample local delicacies. A delicious varitey of South Indian food is available here. The food here is also influence by the Chettinad cuisine (of Chettinadu in its north) which is famous for its use of a variety of spices in preparing mainly non-vegetarian food.
  • Madurai is a city that never sleeps and most food stalls are open from dusk to dawn. Sample the South Indian staples such as idli and dosa which are given unique local flavours. There are a variety of parathas available. Madurai also serves great Biryani which is very spicy compared to Hyderabadi biryani which is more popular.
  • Madurai is a temple city and hence a must try is prasadams (sweet offerings to the temple)– Murukku, laddu, appams and puliyodharai.
  • The tour can be customized to meet your diet preferences and do let us know if you have any food allergies.
