Madurai Vacations

Experience ancient Indian culture with modern touches when you book Madurai vacations. One of the oldest continuously populated cities in the world, Madurai is located along the River Vaigai on the southern peninsula of India. This bustling metropolis is home to sacred temples and cultural institutions.

Major Attractions

Madurai vacation packages give you a host of cultural places to experience. Sri Meenakshi Temple, surrounded by ancient stone walls, is the largest sculptural complex in Tamil Nadu and a must-see attraction. Thirumalai Nayak Mahal, a grand palace, is an architectural wonder blending Dravidian and Islamic styles. Learn about the country's independence leader at the Gandhi Museum, which features a visually biographical collection of photos, sculptures, and manuscripts chronicling the life of the Mahatma. Travel to nearby Kumily and walk among the cardamom plantations. Stay in a cheap hotel in Madurai so you have plenty to spend at the spice market. Here you can find locally made fabrics and curios or sample local blends that get the taste buds watering.

Recurring Festivals and Events

If there's one thing that the people of India like to do, it's celebrate. This means there are many festivals to take part in throughout the year. In the spring, spend two weeks at the Chithirai Festival. This celebration marks the beginning of the Tamil year and the people honor Lord Vishnu as he came to his sister's wedding. The fall festival of Navratri is a nine-day event celebrating the Hindu deity Durga. People commonly set up steps and place idols on them, make food for each other, and decorate cars with banana leaves and broken pumpkins. In the winter, be sure to book Madurai rental cars to visit the Periyar Tiger Preserve and Sanctuary and watch these regal animals in their natural habitat.

Book your Madurai packages with Travelocity, and you can save up to $537 when you book a hotel and flight at the same time. From historic sites to the colorful world of Indian foods and spices, Madurai is a vacation of a lifetime.
