80 kms from Madurai airport, pothighai express train is running from chennai. Afternoon 1 to 3 pm temple closing hours. They offers free lunch based on token system. During Tamil month aadi ( July/August), car festival happens. For Tirupati venkatasalapathy, a garland is sent from here everyday after goddess wears that garland.

I am a guy from Virudhunagar and I am proud that this temple belongs to my district. Its really close to Virudhunagar and easily accessible through car. Srivi is also famous for its milk sweets. MUST VISIT.

The Andal temple in Srivilliputhur is worth a visit if one goes to Madurai. Srivilliputhur is just 1 1/2 drive from Madurai one way and the roads are good. The temple is very big and is maintained well. In fact this temple gouram is the biggest one and the Tamil Nadu govt emblem features it as its logo. Story says... More

This place is the birthplace of Andal and considered to be a very sacred place. The temple is very big with a very attractive gopuram and the temple town is famous for a sweet made from milk i.e Palkhova.

This was such a wonderful temple to visit ! The stone carvings and wooden carvings within the temple were wonderful and the main gopuram takes your breath away. I understand that the gopuram is used in the Tamil Nadu Government official seal. The deities there gave me a calming effect. There is so much historic significance that is associated with... More

Awaited to visit this temple as the Gopuram is the official logo of TN Government. Luckily did not have much crowd on a Sunday. There were lot of paintings on the wall that depict various of forms of Lord Vishnu & His temples across the country. The real beauty is Gopuram stands tall & majestic.
