Madurai Tour Packages

History blends with mythology at Madurai. This South Indian temple town conjures up images of the stuccowork-rich gopurams (nulltowers) of the Meenakshi Temple. Witness a burst of Dravidian-style temple architecture, and a dense display of sculptural work depicting mythological Hindu gods, goddesses and demons. With the Meenakshi Temple at its heart, the entire town unfolds like a fully-bloomed lotus, concentrically outward from the centre. This ancient town strikes you by the grandness of its temples, their architectural and sculptural detailing, and the sense of space and scale. Popular legend has it that Madurai is the actual site of Lord Shiva and Meenakshiâs wedding, and the labyrinthine temple celebrates the love of goddess Meenakshi and her groom Sundereshwar.

  • Shopping in Madurai

    Shopping in Madurai

    The temple town of Madurai has been a popular textile centre since ancient times. Shops bursting with colorful silks, cottons and batiks spill onto the eastern entrance of so much as the Meenakshi Temple. Shopping in Madurai involves a fair bit of walking amid the colorful chaos of its marketplace. At Puthu Mandapam Market, you can choose from an array of cottons and batiks, the place also has a row of tailoring shops that can reproduce your dress with cottons and printed fabrics in a few hours. A must-buy when in Madurai is the silk named after the city. The collection of Madurai silk and handloom sarees at Hajeemoosa Textiles is very impressive. This fine silk comes in myriad colors, but has a distinct pattern.

    Cottage Arts Emporium, Poompuhar Handicraft Shop and Madurai Gallery are some places to find one-off hand-woven silks and cottons, besides bell-metal lamps, bronze figurines, and wood and stone carvings. Browse the market for the ethnically crafted silver and gold jewelry â some of these government emporiums offer a rather impressive collection. Or you can even head to South Avani Moola Street which is predominantly a jewelry market. Grocery is available on East Maasi Street, and electronics at Town Hall Road.

    Madurai is not quite the place for brands, shopping here is about fine pieces of textiles, brass-works, Tanjore paintings, Sungidi handloom sarees, wooden handicraft and an array of antiques. To get a feel of the local market culture of Madurai, stroll to Pundumandapam â an old mall, as much as 500-years-old, speckled with tailor shops, quaint stores selling books, handicraft and bronze sculptures. You can even try the cooperative stores (often a union of weavers and/or looms) such as Co-optex for dainty handloom cotton sarees.

    ATMs of most nationalized and private banks can be found in the city. You can use your credit card at the emporiums and other big stores, but at the street-side market you would need cash at your disposal. Major banks accept foreign exchange â you can walk into any branch to enquire. Though you will find money exchangers in mid and high range hotels. Commercial money changers are available in the area around the Madurai railway station.

  • Restaurants in Madurai

    Restaurants in Madurai

    Restaurant - Madurai is not really the place for European or Oriental cuisine, sticking to regional delicacies here is a safer bet. The food here is flavored with a host of spices and condiments, though coconut and tamarind are added to almost all vegetarian recipes. Not to mention, most dishes are rustled up using coconut oil or coconut milk. Coconut chutney, sambar (seasoned lentil broth), rasam (a hot broth made of tamarind juice and pepper) and mixed spices are served with every meal to enhance the taste. A typical Tamilian meal comprises steamed rice, lentils, grains and vegetables. And if you are non-vegetarian, there is a great variety of Chettinad delicacies to choose from. Chettinad pepper chicken is an all-time favorite of the locals. You can even try out the Tamil style of Mughlai cuisine, especially the biryanis and paya (a type of spiced broth generally eaten with paranthas or appam).

    Typical South Indian breakfast is readily served and to perfection at most local restaurants. Popular breakfast options include idli (steamed rice cakes), dosa (a pancake made from a batter of rice) and lentils crisp fried on a pan, vada (deep fried doughnuts made from a batter of lentils), pongal (a mash of rice and lentils boiled together and seasoned with ghee, cashew nuts, pepper and cumin seed), yogurt and uppma (cooked semolina seasoned in oil with mustard, pepper, cumin seed and dry lentils). Any Tamil meal is incomplete without crisp papadam or appam!

    You could try out some of these restaurants: Modern Restaurant, Murugan Idli Shop, Arya Bhavan, Ruby Restaurant, Temple View Rooftop Restaurant, Meenakshi Bhavan, Saradha Mess, Muniyandi Vilas, and of course the in-site restaurants at such 5-star properties as Taj Garden Retreat. Besides, there are a host of coffee shops doing a smattering of snacks.
