    4 reviews

    Excellent group of monuments. However it is very badly maintained with litter all over the place. Try and avoid to visit it during the weekends when it gets super busy with locals.

    The American College

    3.5
    3 reviews

    An oasis of red dirt and tropical trees in an otherwise hectic neighborhood just north of the dried-up Vaigai River. Immediately across a very busy street from Hotel North Gate - a good place to stay if you're visiting the college for a few days.

    Alagar Koil

    2 reviews

    A nice escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Madurai, this temple is much smaller than the Meenakshi Temple but worth the trip. You can also hike up the road (or catch a ride) to a second smaller temple and the sacred bathing springs at the top. There are often peacocks and monkeys wandering around the grounds, and giant ...

    Falls in the mostly ruined ruins category. Most of the detail has been eroded off the carvings, and the temple itself is small.

    This is an archaeological wonder constructed more than 1000 years ago by Raja Raja Chola. The tower is constructed in such a way that it never casts a shadow on the ground. Definitely a must-visit.

    A little struggling beach bar, that used to be the place to have a cold beer, right on the beach. The police have cracked down on them though, so they are just serving fruit juice for now. They do say you can bring your own booze though, so there is that....and of course Ben's quirky little kama sutra paintings all ...

    Shoppers Shop

    1 review

    Run by an adorably friendly family, Shoppers Shop in downtown Madurai (near the train station) is one of the few spots in town where you can buy a variety of imported products. As much as I love Tamil food, I just couldn't get used to savory sambar for breakfast, and Shoppers Shop came to the rescue with granola from Virginia, ...
