Dominated by the fourteen colourful towers of the Meenakshi Amman Temple, Madurai is a magnificent stop on any tour of India. One of the most interesting places to visit in Madurai is the Mahatma Gandhi museum.
One of five official museums in India that is dedicated to the Indian lawyer and anti-colonialist, there are numerous artefacts and original letters that highlight the work and ethics of the man in his peaceful campaign to remove India from British rule. Another must see on your Madurai tour is Meenakshi Temple.
This Hindu temple is dedicated to goddess Meenakshi and is visually stunning.
