In one of the Tamil literatures, the city is characterised as "lotus-shaped." Madurai has been a well-planned city in terms of road and building development since time immemorial. The Meenakshi Amman temple serves as the focal point for the construction of all roadways. The Meenakshi Amman temple is one of India's biggest. There's always something going on here—ceremonies, musicians performing, marriages, prostrating pilgrims, festivals—making it a fascinating area to spend time in and experience temple life.
The temple is the geographic and ceremonial hub of Madurai and is split into a series of concentric quadrangular enclosures surrounded by towering brick walls. It is one of the rare Tamil Nadu temples with four gates facing four directions. This temple consists of four towers, each of which is beautifully painted with hundreds of coloured images. There are an additional eight towers and a hall with a thousand ornamented pillars. The Thousand Pillar Hall is a temple complex that has a museum that comprises frozen stones and bronze statues of Hindu deities.
