In the morning our driver will pick you from your hotel / home at Madurai Railway station/Air port start for an  ½ hours drive to Madurai for break fast from the renowned Murugan Idli Shop on West Masi Street is the place! This restaurant is simple and unpretentious -- as they say on their website, they have a south Indian ambiance, which means loud and friendly. Their specialty isn't their decor but the "traditional mouth watering dishes from our grandmother's heart". Apart from idli and dosai, the highlight is their special blend of spicy chutney powder.

  09.00 AM : Visit of Sree Meenakshi Amman Temple 
Sree Meenakshi Amman Temple is one of the most famous temples in South India. The huge temple that extends beyond 6 hectares of land is dedicated to god Shiva and it is named after goddess Parvati. The temple was constructed by Kulasekara Pandya. The temple has been mentioned in the songs sung by ancient saint as early as the 7th century. Invasion of Malik Kapur in 1310 resulted in the ancient temple being destroyed. When Hindu kings returned to power, the temple was restored and the present form is a contribution by Nayaks who ruled Madurai between 16th and 18th centuries. The thousand pillar hall is one of the amazing works in the temple that is famous for architectural brilliance. It is the temple’s museum and the statues here are exquisite.
 10.30 AM : Puthu Mandapam
Venture inside the cavernous Puthu Mandapam, a 17th century pillared entrance hall opposite the Meenakshi Temple's east tower, to find rows of tailors and stalls selling fabric, scarves, jewellery, fashion accessories, handicrafts, and art work. You can get good quality clothes made there, including decent replicas. Balbina Boutique, at shop 119, is popular with foreign customers. The charming lady who runs it speaks excellent English. I bought a couple of stunning Madhubani paintings from her
  12.00 AM : Visit of Thirumalai Nayaker Palace 
This palace was built with the help of Italian Architect and is a classic fusion of Dravidian, Islamic and European styles. Tirumalai Nayaker’s palace at Madurai is considered to be one of the wonders of the South.
 01.30 PM : Lunch 
After having spent memorable time with historical, cultural and spiritual spheres we take you to a nearby restaurant where you can enjoy delicious Tamil Meals or North Indian Thali from the number of Marwadi Hotels. 
  02.30 PM : Thiruparankundram- 

Thirupparankundram gains importance as it is one of the six places chosen by god Murugan as his abode. It is said that this was where Lord Murugan married Devasena. It is also considered as the place where sun and moon abide. This cave temple is dedicated to the element of earth among the five elements and various Tamil classical texts mention this hill as ‘Southern Himalaya’. It might interest you to learn that the hill not only houses Murugan temple but also an Islamic Shrine, which is dedicated to Sekunder. The architecture is amazing

  05.30 PM : Samanar Hills 

Samanar Hills is situated 10 km away from the famous Meenakshi Amman Temple. The caves found here were used by Samanar, the Jains. It is believed to belong to 1 AD. The Jain carvings found here are amazing and so are the sculptures. The hill top offers splendid view of Madurai. A natural fountain that is ancient is found here and it is called Pechchi Pallam. It is a great place to spend considerable time in solitude.
