Pazhamudhir Solai, Madurai

4.6
#3 of 16 in Historic Sites in Madurai
Head atop a dense tree-covered hill and visit Pazhamudhir Solai, one of the six important abodes of Lord Muruga, god of love and war. A myriad of vibrantly colored figures adorn the Dravidian temple's facade. Though the construction date remains unknown, sources can confirm that this is the last among the Arupadaiveedu temples (each a home of Muruga). Walk around the temple and see monkeys playing around in the local area, which includes a sacred stream.

  • Temple is not very special, though. Annoying that you're a tourist on a most expensive card forced upon them. Other possibility was not there, it was said to me. I got overrides the row for the ceremony and stood five minutes later with two balls candy outside.
