In the centre of Madurai, not so far from the train station, lays one of the true wonders of India – famous Meenakshi Temple. The temple is so different from the surroundings that it looks like an object that fell down from cosmos. Even from quite a big distance you may admire marvelous gopuras (towers) with thousands of sculptures (each one different from another), covered with vivid colors. There are four towers and each of them is a wonder of architecture. The inside of the temple is not so magnificent but it is worth a visit, especially during religious rites. Unfortunately, I had no time to do that, as I spent only a couple of hours in Madurai and took an afternoon train to Kochi in Kerala.
