We, eight in number, have planned to visit Rameshwarm & Madurai in April 2013 i.e. during Chaitra festival. We have been told that it is a period of heavy rush. After reaching Rameshwarm early in the morning and paying obeisanace there, would it be fairly easy to go back to Madurai by evening by road/train. What about accommodation at Madurai especially during that period ? How much would it take to pay obeisance at Meenakshi temple ? Does the concept of paid 'Darshan' continue during that period.
