It is located in the second largest citiy in Tamilnadu Madurai.
The tabernacle labyrinthian is within a high-walled introduction, at the nucleus of which are the two sanctums for Meenakshi and Sundareshwara, enclosed by a class of smaller shrines and lordly pillared halls.

The new temple was built by Kulasekara Pandya, but the commendation for making the temple as splendid as it is today goes to the Nayaks.
The Nayaks ruled Madurai from the 16th to the 18th century and tract a superior work of their ascendency in the Meenakshi - Sundareswarar Temple.

The large

According to legend Madurai is the existent position where the ritual between Week and Meenakshi took spot. Their soaring towers move from plain granite bases, and are cloaked with stucco figures of deities, mythical animals and monsters rouged in vivid flag.
