It would be difficult to visit Madurai and not be in awe of the spiritual history of the place. Filled with temples, palaces, and other relics of the city's ancient past, Madurai is one of the most beautiful cities in India and a pleasure to explore from your Madurai hotel.
The majority of hotels in Madurai are located near the city's railway station, on or near West Veil and West Marret streets. These vary in price and quality, with the more luxurious hotels located a bit further into the heart of the city. Alagar Kovil Road, or State Highway 72, is also a prominent location for Madurai hotels, as is Kamarajar Road.
Temples, Restaurants, and More
Also known as the Temple City of India, Madurai is home to the famous Meenakshi Amman Temple, which is the most prominent tourist attraction in the city. Of course, there also are temples on nearly every street, interwoven with shops, restaurants, and the numerous coffee/tea cafes that have earned the city the nickname of "Thoongaa Nagaram," which means Sleepless City. Visitors to Madurai hotels also can visit Thirumalai Nayak Palace, built by 17th century ruler Thirumalai Nayak.
