Midnight Tunes at Meenakshi Temple, Madurai

Deities and mythos are entwined in the Indian psyche, and as much as it is an intriguing prospect to study their origins, daily rituals are just as enthralling. In the Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple, every night, song and dance follows the divine procession of Lord Shiva being taken to Meenakshi’s abode in a palanquin. While you wait for the procession to begin, we urge you to try the famous Jigarthanda – an anytime drink for the weary, sun-worn traveler.
