Beautiful ancient temple. Try going there before 6 am. If you are lucky, you will see an elephant walk in! You I can feed it and it will tap its trunk on your head as a blessing!

Great work of ART. You are amazed and at the same time so satisfied about the beauty of the place.. spread over 90acr of area... So much art work to see...Spare nice time and enjoy every bit of it...Do capture memories in your camera...You get hotels near by..and not much of travel from the airport or the city. .

As a devout Hindu, the trip would have been incomplete without seeing the Meenakshi Temple. The temple is beautiful but the surroundings could have been cleaner. There were long queues but worth the wait.
