Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal, Madurai

(2.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
A majestic 17th-century palace, Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal represents one of India's architectural wonders, built as a royal residence. Although much of the palace was destroyed by various armed conflicts in the area and only about a quarter of the original structure remains, you can still admire the enclosed court with its monumental pillars--a classic blend of Rajput and Dravidian building styles. Our Madurai vacation generator makes visiting Thirumalai Nayakar Mahal and other Madurai attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
