HolidayIQ Traveller Kiran says, "Watch out for the timings before you leave, mornings and weekdays are good to avoid rush. The dress code is simple - males to wear plain Panche/Vesti/Lungi with/without towel around. No shirt to be worn/carried. Females can wear saree/wrap a lungi around; paper lungis are available nearby for both the cases. You cannot carry anything with you so just put all your belongings in a bag and keep some money in hand for the offerings and poojas."

HolidayIQ Traveller Pawankalyan says, "It is the second largest temple in world, here travellers should come for preplanned / Special Darshan available 300 per person. Pilgrims can come here in a passage of foot steps from lower Tirupati, buses are available from lower Tirupati at Rs 45 for adults and 25 for children. I finally advise travellers to come to this place through package trip only."

The pool that's just wonderful, the moment I stepped into it, I felt like all my sins were washed off was as clean as I was born. Really, a must visit for everyone."

Hence Madurai is also known as Meenakshi Pattinam (town). Madurai has its own heritage value. Mahatma Gandhi, when he first visited Madurai, saw group of shepherds walking in the street without wearing any shirt due to poverty, seeing them, he also decided to wear a 2 piece cloth - dhoti and a towel. This started in Madurai till his end. The Gandhi Museum, Nayakkar Mahal etc are noteworthy places to visit."
