Tailor-made Madurai Holidays

In the early morning hours, the city of Madurai breaks into a riot of colours from the flower markets awash with rose petals and marigold garlands to the hustle of emporiums selling handicrafts, carpets and exquisite Madurai silk. People queue for mutton biryani and barter among overflowing sacks of spices until the evening when the action moves curb side and post-work punters pull over for grilled parottas that melt slowly in your mouth.

The origins of Tamil Nadu’s oldest city dates back over 2,500 years, its pulsating streets doused in numerous temples and shrines. Every day worshippers flood the Meenakshi Temple to celebrate under the multi-tiered gopuram towers festooned with brightly coloured sculptures. Architecture lovers can make their own aesthetical pilgrimage to Thirumalai Nayak Palace, possibly the grandest in Southern India, with colossal pillars, high-rearing arches, and stunning foliated brickwork.

Navigate this extraordinary city with the help of a travel expert who can tailor your time here whether you want to focus on its holy architecture or immerse yourself in a street-tour experience.
