Madurai widely known as The Temple City, is the place where I stayed during my bachelors and I got a chance to visit the city two weeks back. One of the interesting feature of this city is its architecture. The city is built around the Famous Meenakshi Amman temple and it appears like concentric rectangles when viewed from air. The thing I love about this city is that the people always respect others even strangers irrespective of the age and it is always flooded with people all through the day(so they also call it as The Sleepless city). Having reached by 3.00 in the morning, I decided to visit the Meenakshi Amman temple at 7.00.
I’m sharing the bestof the lot… 😀
Friday is considered as the auspicious day in the week for Hindus. Women go to their near by temple and lite these small earthern lamps and pray.
When their wishes comes true, sometimes they offer something(Fruits, clothes, rice, silver,gold ) that they can afford equal to their weight or the weight of the youngest person in their family.
A scaled version of the temple and my reflection on the glass.
Elephant is considered the other form of the deity Vinayaka and people bow under him, he’ll (Elephant) place the tip of his trunk over their head, wishing them.
Hope you enjoyed it 😀
