Situated on the banks of the Vaigai river, Madurai, the ancient capital of the Pandyan Kings, is a sacred place. Legend has it, that the divine nectar falling from the Lord Shiva’s locks gave the town its name.

    • “The guide we had there was very good. He was knowledgeable, warm and had a great sense of humor. We particularly enjoyed the evening visit to the temple to see the ceremony and pomp and ceremony for putting Shiva and Parvati to sleep. The reverence of the populace and the devotion of the accolytes were something to see.” – Jan & Doug McGeorge, USA
