Madurai Meenakshi Temple is one of the most attractive examples of Dravidian architecture. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Meenakshi and Lord Sundareswarar (another name for Shiva). It is centrally located in Madurai and the lotus-shaped city surrounds it.

The Meenakshi temple was originally built by Kulasekara Pandayan. This is way back in 3 BCE. Later somewhere in the 14th century it was raided and looted by Malik Kafur, a Mughal General. It was rebuilt by Vishwanatha Nayak.
