    Thanks to the author for sharing the information. Madhura Meenakshi is a very powerful Goddess and when we visit the temple the idol inside we feel we are somewhere in another world. I visited my family at this temple once and I enjoyed the Darshan.
    I have not visited this temple on this festival day and if any chance comes I feel I should visit this temple on this day. Tamilnadu is very famous for ancient temples and they maintain them very neat and clean. They follow all required protocols and see that the whole atmosphere in the temple is very pious.
    A hall that is having a thousand pillars, a water pond with a golden lotus in which pilgrims will take a ritual bath, a wedding hall, gardens and elephant sheds are there in the temple area worth seeing. There are many small shrines in this area that are being visited by pilgrims regularly.
