This temple is very well preserved and maintained very nicely. There was not much of crowd when we visited ( may be during weekdays) and hence could have a good Darshan.

This is a temple of Vishnu ji in Madurai. We were not allowed to visit the main sanctum because of some maintenance work being undertaken. Please check the status before visiting, if you have plans before 10th of December.

This is a big temple dedicated to lord Vishnu. Several sanctums are there. The chakarathalwar and the anandasayana Perumal are really beautiful. Prasadams sold here are of excellent taste.

We went to visit lord Sri Kalamegaperumal at Thirumoghur. We went to this temple by hiring a car as this is little far away from Madurai Junction. There were shrines of Kalamegha Perumal, Mohanavalli thayar, Narasimhar, Chakarathazhwar (16 hands), Lord Hanuman. Was very nice!!!

Mornings are better. Beautiful, big temple. Inside maintenance is good. But the Entry to the temple not maintained properly. Historical. Narasimhar on the reverse side of chakkarathalwar, just awesome. Saturdays are heavily packed.
