“Sri Meenakshi temple and closing ceremony , with mr Johnson.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

For last weekend I had contacted mr Johnson as a tour guide to show me and my cousin around in the temple of Sri Meenakshi, Madurai.
He initially proposed a tour that included more sights, but we wanted to focus on the Sri Meenakshi temple and to learn more about the origins of the city and the anthropology and the rich history of the Dravidian and Tamil culture and get an insight in the meanings of Hinduism.
Mr Johnson surely met our expectations... A great story teller, able to state all the facts and full of energy and with a very beautiful English accent, he gave us a cultural experience I am going to promote with all people travelling to Madurai.

“Wonderful half day visit to Meenakshi temple”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Ours wasn't a planned trip to the Meenakshi temple, we just decided on it while holidaying in kodaikanal and we were glad that we did it. Me and my wife have always been fond of visiting places of architectural beauty and this place is no exception. The guide who we hired (again as an afterthought) was thoroughly knowledgeable and made the entire 2.5 hours more worthwhile. Definitely recommend a visit to Meenakshi temple if you are in or around Madurai.

Tip: It's easier to make it in the evenings and there's a lesser crowd. Make sure you have full pants, as I had to buy a 'mundu' and I also saw a couple of tourists being turned away for being in shorts.

All in all, a very memorable visit

“detailed and well presented visits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

The guide Madurai Inhabitants provided for us was patient and with a good sense of humour.
Thanks its explanations we went through all the gods of the Hindu culture. We also had the opportunity to discuss about the Tamil Nadu and all customs around India.

Nevertheless, be prepared to use your brain in holidays as the visit is really detailed.

A good value for money.

Our guide offered a thorough tour of Sri Meenakshi temple. He knew a lot about the temple as well as Hindu and Indian culture and traditions, and was happy to share his knowledge with us. We were very satisfied with this interesting and insightful temple tour.
