Pictures of my city!

Hi Guys,

I took some pictures of Madurai's temples when I visited them in the past 3 days. I'm sharing those pictures with you.

Teppakulam, decorated with lights
The front tower of Koodal Azhagar Perumal Temple
We went to the terrace of the temple. In the 2nd and 3rd floors you can find Lord Vishnu in standing and sleeping poses respectively. It is one of the very few temples to have him in all the 3 poses
The main tower of the temple. A different type of tower, with a rounded top
The temple street
The outer corridor of the temple
Elephant at Meenakshi Amman Temple. It was busy all the time blessing the devotees
A stone mandapam in the Aadi street (inside Meenakshi Amman Temple)
Pigeons add a lot of beauty to the temple
Though, i knew Meenakshi Amman Temple has camels, it was the 1st time I saw them. They were just magnificent creatures.
One of the many shops selling pictures of different Gods
A view of the Golden Lotus Tank
A view of one of the 4 main towers from inside the temple

When we went Rangoli competition was being held in the outer streets (chitirai street) of the temple. It was just wonderful
One of the best Rangolis
Another one

Hope you enjoyed the pictures of my city.

Happy Viewing!!!
