About Meenakshi Amman Temple, Madurai

Temple dedicate to an avatar of Goddess Parvati, the Meenakshi Temple comes with an interesting story. The princess Tadaatagai (avatar of Parvati) was born with three breasts and a voice from the heavens announced that the third breast would go away when she met her future husband.

The princess was trained like any other royal blood and she soon captured most of the lands and the heavens with her knowledge. Soon she set out to capture Kailasa and after winning over Shiva’s army, she met Shiva to finally realize that he was her future husband.

Till this day a procession is made everynight where Sundareswarar’s idol (Shiva’s avatar) is brought from his temple to spend the night at the Meenakshi Temple. The Shiva idol is taken back to his abode in the morning.Locals can join the procession.

Highlights include:

  • Architecture and vibrant colors of the temple.
