Pazhamudhir Solai, Madurai
(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Madurai vacation planner to arrange your visit to Pazhamudhir Solai and other attractions in Madurai.
