The museum is very pretty and there’s a bit to see. Your guide can explain everything in detail. It’s too bad that photography is not allowed. The pillars are perfectly aligned no matter which direction you look.

Do not forget to visit this place when you visit the Meenakshi temple.
It is within the Temple museum. There is a nominal ticket to enter the museum. Although the ornate pillars with the beautiful ceiling and excellent lighting arrangements are just a part of that area, there are plenty of sculptures, paintings, and other items to be seen.
Don't get disappointed if you count the pillars and find that they are less than 1000. It is a figure of speech. And not all the pillars are equally sculptured.
But it is definitely worth the visit.

A room with a thousand carved stone pillars, as well as exhibits of statuary and other artifacts, this is a separate section of the temple with a separate entrance fee. Worth it. Spend some time wondering around, and be sure to check out the ceiling artwork.

Hundreds of pillars, carved with awesome sculpture and
eye elusive paintings on roof, Equally distanced, a marvel of architecture, you can not believe these were made at that era when no modern building equipment was available. Single stones were transported by elephants with coconut ropes and made of old tools, No computer, graphics etc... Hats off the artists and engineer's of that time.

This structure is located within the Madurai Meenakshi Temple. The stone with which its carved, the old wooden door which is close to 18 feet high/long, etc are worth seeing!!!

A marvelous construction and its grandeur always makes us standstill for a while. We can enjoy seeing the sculpture in each and every pillar opposite to Aayiram Kaal Mandapam (hall with 1000 pillars).

This is part of the Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple and has some very beautiful sculptures. Although not quite a thousand pillars, it a large number of exquisitely carved pillars. Too bad you cannot take pictures as not even cell phones are allowed inside the complex anymore.
