Palace Of Interest:

Meenakshi Amman Temple
The Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple or Meenakshi Amman Temple is one of the most famous Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and goddess Parvati located in the holy city of Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. It is commonly referred to as the Meenakshi temple.

Murugan
Muruga is perhaps the most popular Hindu deity amongst Tamils of Tamil Nadu state in India, Sri Lanka and in the Tamil diaspora. He is popular throughout India and also abroad. He is known by a number of other names, including Kartikeyan, Kumaran, Shanmukha, Skanda and Subramanian. He is the God of war and the patron deity of the Tamil land. As the late Tamil devotional work - the Tiru-pukazh would have it, "Murugan never hesitates to come to the aid of a devotee when called upon in piety or distress".

Thirupparamkunram Murugan Temple
One of the Aru Padaiveedu, the six main abodes of Lord Muruga, Tiruparankunram offers a mystic beauty. It is carved in rock and is monstrous in size for such an architecture. It is where the lord marries Deivanai, the divine daughter of the king of heaven, Indra. The temple is located 5 miles from Madurai in India. In the main shrine, apart from Muruga, deities of Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu, Lord Vinayaka and Goddess Durga are housed. The other 'Arupadaiveedu's dedicated for Lord Muruga are Palani (120 km west of Madurai), Swamimalai (150 km east of Madurai), Thiruthani (50 km from Chennai), Pazhamudircholai (10 km north of Madurai) and Thiruchendur (100 km south of Madurai).
