Meenakshi Temple  
   
The Meenakshi temple complex at Madurai is a city temple. It has eminent and exquisitely carved towers enveloping the temple, dedicated to Goddess Meenakashi in Madurai.

Considered as the south gateway, the Meenakshi temple consists of the twin temples of God Shiva and Goddess Meenakshi, each one as high as about nine storeys.

The Meenakshi temple has royal stonewalls and towers growing out of the swarming streets of the city center. The image of Goddess Meenakshi is said to be carved out of a single emerald. This foreign temple was renovated by various kings, adding coiled corridors and larger-than-life sculptures. According to the myth of this temple the marriage of the goddess Meenakshi to Shiva really took place in Madurai and is still celebrated each summer with large enthusiasm and gaiety.
The correct time of temple's origin is not confirmed but the organization that is standing today date typically from the 12th to the 18th century.
The present temple standing today was built in the 17th century A.D. by the Nayak rulers. The temple is excellent example of sculpture and wonderful architecture.
