Editor's Review

Madurai, one of the oldest cities of India, and South India's great temple town, derives its name from the divine nectar (madhu), showered by Shiva. Its claim to fame is the exquisitely carved Meenakshi Temple, which houses within the 1000 pillared hall. Temples aside, Madurai is also a centre of Tamil poetry and writing. Today, it is growing as an industrial centre, marked by pollution and traffic. However, it continues to embody the temple culture, celebrating the love and marriage of Meenakshi (Parvati) and Sundereswarar (Shiva) and is clearly the first choice among Tamil Nadu's temple towns.
