The temple was dark, alight by just the millions of old oil lamps, casting divine shadows of illumination on the Gods and Goddesses housed within. The head priest Shankar Narayan is very helpful

This is a spectacular temple but it can get very crowded --- it is best to come early and also having a guide (a friend that knows the temple) help navigate all the wonderful parts of this temple. Maduri is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world and staying only two days made me feel part of the... More

Madurai i thought was known for Meenakshi ammal temple but Swami Subramanya temple too is very good. You can see the same grandeur of sculptures and particularly the way the temple is built as part of a mountain. It is a must visit for every visitor to Madurai

This is a very big temple of Lord Muruga located in the outskirts of Madurai. It is one among the six famous temples of Lord Muruga. It is said that the marriage of Lord Muruga and Devayanai took place here.

By visiting and bowing head one can feel how human being is nothing against great power. Temple is historic and worth watching with details carved on each side of the wall.

Entire temple was carved out of gigantic boulder. The main garghagriha houses five deities. However the temple is known for Muruga deity. There was not much crowd when we visited. Elders may find it difficult to scale staircases.

Visit to this temple is always interesting. The entire structure is inside a hill. One interesting feature of this temple is a deity for Fever. It is believed that worship to this deity would get rid of fevers.
