Koodal Azhagar Temple

It is one of the greatest temple with architectural wonders. Located some 20 kms from Madurai. Have to spare at least two hours to visit the temple entirely.

This is one of the temples that usually one visits on a trip to Madurai. Take a cab and cover Nupura Gangai, pazhamudicholai and this temple at one go.

A very old temple in Madurai, just 5 mins walk from Madurai railway junction. Lord Vishnu, Thayaar, Sudar kodi, Chakarathaalvar are the major shrines. The dosa is very famous in the Temple. You can get it in the Temple stall. It takes around 30 mins to see the temple if no crowd.

Walkable from the Meenakshi Amman Temple and Thirumalai Naicker Mahal, this is another of your great temples in Madurai. Though not as old or grand as the big temple, this one is worth spending a while as well!

This temple one of the Divyadesam is situated in the heart of Madurai city behind Bus stand. Temple complex is big and built in traditional style with big front Gopuram and beautiful vimanam. The Presiding diety is very beautiful to look at and mesmerizes the worshipper.

Koodal Alagar Temple holds at the top of its main tower a reclining Vishnu under Anantha Sesa which is gorgeous to behold. Go during sunset and let the whole scene sink in.

Lovely VISHNU temple. 3 forms or avatars of Vishnu, a lovely and rare Venkateshwara idol in a sitting posture with his consorts. Above Suryanarayan, standing and Ranganthaswamy in the sleeping posture. One single temple with 3 different postures of Vishnu which is a rarity!
