Visit Madurai for a Slice of Tamil History
It is a known fact that Dravidian civilization is one of the oldest in history with Madurai being the seat of Tamil culture. In fact, its history dates back to the Sangam period- a period spanning from 3rd century BCE to 4th century CE. Madurai is also home to several temples built by the many rulers who reigned the city. The most famous among them is the Meenakshi Sundareshwar Temple. Built around 1623 CE, this temple attracts more than 25,000 people especially during Fridays.
To make sure that your visit is pleasant, make sure to book one of the many hotels in Madurai that are close to the temple. As earlier said, the temple can get crowded with long queues to get inside the premises. The security too is very high. Staying at a place close to the temple allows you to queue up early in the morning.
Besides the Meenakshi Sundareshwar Temple, there are many more attractions in Madurai. The Thirumalai Nayak Palace is one among them. Built in 1636 by Maharaja Thirumalai Nayak, the Palace is a shining example of the Indo-Saracenic architectural style. There’s also the Thirupparakundram Temple- one of the six holy places dedicated to Lord Muruga.
The Sangam Hotel managed by the Sangam Group of Hotels is an ideal place for those looking to visit the temple. The location is just 4 km away from the temple. It is neither too far, nor too close (the narrow bylanes leading to the temple can be difficult to navigate). It is also close to the Madurai Railway Station and the Madurai Airport. Staff at Sangam Hotels can help you engage a guide to navigate and explore Madurai. You can also choose one of their packages and experience the city.
As for the food, the multi-cuisine restaurant makes Sangam Hotel one of the best hotels in Madurai. From Continental to Chinese, the hotel offers everything! And for those looking to sample local street food- chefs at Sangam Hotels have handpicked different elements of traditional Madurai food and re introduced them to suit modern sensibilities.
Madurai is also a bustling business city with hundreds of events and conferences being hosted every day. The Mini and Main Conference Halls attached to the Hotel are best suited to host high profile events and meetings.
All of these facilities make Sangam Hotel an ideal choice for those looking for good hotels in Madurai.
