Colourful temples and lively flower markets
Enticing temples covered in colourful carvings and a glimpse into the life and devotion of the faithful followers
People generally go to Madurai for one reason, but what a reason it is. There are few temples in the world more enticing than the Shree Meenakshi complex in Madurai. Huge towers covered in colourful carvings surround the vast square, at the heart of which stands the dwelling of the fish-eyed goddess Meenakshi. You don’t just come here to marvel at the temple, but to experience the busy life of the temple, the rituals and the devotion of the faithful.
When in Madurai make sure you also stop at the Thirumalai Nayak Palace and Madurai’s lively flower market.

The Far & Wild Community...
We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.
The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
