  • Are you interested in temple art and sculpture? then you should visit the Koodal Azhagar temple very close to Meenakshi temple and Madurai bus station. Constructed in the Dravidian style of architecture. The temple is glorified in Divyaprabandha. There is a huge idol of Lord Vishnu with the structural beuty. Well maintained and a fairly big temple, lovely calm and peaceful.

  • Om namo Narayanaya. Very big idol amazed. Felt so happy on visit.

  • Definitely a place to see if you cherish old temples and heritage. Well maintained historical Hindu temple at the heart of Madurai!!!
