Madurai Meenakshi Amman Beckons You For the Avanimoolam Festival
August to October is the season when Madurai-iites get a break from the scorching sun. It is also the time for some temple darshan to witness the famed Avanimoolam Festival. Not that you need an excuse to visit this temple city- festivals are an all-year-round event here! Yes, but the weather is surely an incentive. In fact, hotels in Madurai are packed to capacity during this time of the year.
Hotel Sangam, Madurai offers yet another incentive for tourists to visit the place. We are offering a 10% discount on all rooms! Guests looking to avail the discount can either call us directly or book through our website.
Finding decent luxury hotels in Madurai is a rarity. This one’s not only top quality, but also very close to the temple- just 4kms to be precise. Besides devotees, they also play host to businessmen and travelers frequenting the place. The Main and Mini Conference Halls are ideal to host corporate meetings and parties. Cocktail parties, weddings, product launches, etc. can be held at the Amphitheater lawn that supports up to 400 people.
How can you visit Madurai and not indulge in the lip smacking Madurai street food including the lip smacking barotta and salna. Any leftovers from the barottas are pounded and sautéed with tomato, onions, red chilli powder and a host of other spices to make kothu parotta (literally meaning minced parota. There’s also the Veechu Parotta- our own South Indian version of rummali roti. And yes, how can I forget the sight of soft idlis smoking up from huge aluminum idli steamers (also called idli paanai) decorated with thiruneer and kumkumam . In Madurai, they’re a 24×7 treat. You can land up in the city in the dead of the night and yet be assured to get you stomach’s fill of Madurai malli (jasmine) idlis. The idlis here are extremely soft to the touch and pristine white in color- hence the moniker!
Err… coming back to Hotel Sangam -easy to get carried away at the mention of street food, innit? The Hotel offers the ultimate dining experience for those visiting Madurai. We offer street food handpicked by the chefs to be incorporated in their menu and reinvented into a modern format.
If Madurai’s traditional cuisine is too much for your senses, the multi cuisine restaurant attached to the Hotel serves you scrumptious food from around the world. And for those retiring by the lounge, there’s The Corner Room. It is well known in local circles for its range of liquor and the local delicacies served as accompaniments.
Spacious rooms, courteous and intuitive staff, and excellent hospitality are some of the features that make Hotel Sangam one of the best hotels in Madurai.
