Overall Guide : Madurai is an awesome place to enjoy and relax! Foods in Madurai are cheap and exceptionally tasty! Do not forget to try really unique foods such as : idly in murugan idly kadai, Kari dosai at konar mess, nandu omlet at... more Amma mess and Jikarthanda. Transportation is sufficient but sometimes it is really frustrating to travel to remote locations. Meenakshi Amman temple and many other historical sightings are a must visit. Also regionally high quality silk item can be purchased at Madurai. Try the "Jasmine" flower, as the city is know for its special kind. Though Madurai is really safe, beware of some cheats and frauds (in selling). DO NOT WANDER AT NIGHT UNLESS YOU ARE A LOCAL! AND WOMEN SHOULD NEVER WEAR ANY "Promiscuous" CLOTHING! Overall, Madurai is a city of tradition and culture and not a city for its glamorous clubs and bars! Do visit Madurai for its serenity and beauty! Madurai is definitely a MUST visit place! :D
Not to be missed Meenakshi Temple , FOOD IS AWESOME! , Safe place during the day, unsafe during night

Overall Guide : The city is very attractive for tourists with its temples, street markets, shops and restaurants. The temples, important pilgrimage centre, represent for the Hindus their religious and cultural life. Another caracteristic place to visit in Madurai is the... more Gandhi Museum, where you can find rare living memories of “ather of India” and a carefully drawn up historical report of India’s fight for independence. Madurai has a tropical climate interested by monsoons. Usually monsoons changes direction every 6 months creating one dry and one humid season. The average temperature goes between 20°C and 28°C, the hottest month is May and the coolest one is January.

Madurai slang helping tendency of the people their adjustment with in and near, their smiling approach etc.... more But at present water problem and the condition of river vaigai makes me more worried.

Overall Guide : A nice city to live. Feel homely. Civic amenities requires proper attention. Traffic is a puzzle. Drivers float the rules both in two wheelers & four wheelers. Major shopping should go out of core town. Parking lots are to be... more properly planned and allocated. Just putting No parking does not solve the problem.People require exposure to outside. Require proper Air connections both inland & overseas. Just by introducing Spice Jet you could see it is full for coming days and understand the demand. Doubling of the railway track uopto Cheenai is most wanted one.
Not to be missed Meenakshi Temple , Mahatma Gandhi Museum , Thirumalai Nayak Palace
