Madurai
Madurai MapA vibrant, vibrant city filled with pilgrims, vendors, sacred cows, rickshaws, shops and markets, Madurai in the state of Tamil Nadu is of South India’s oldest cities. Tamil and Greek documents record its existence as early as the 4th century BC. A succession of power struggles and invasions ensued, with the British East India Company finally gaining power over Madurai. Today, its appealingly small size makes it simple to explore and its main attraction - the Sri Meenakshi Temple is a actual draw.
