Meenakshi temple

We had seen a lot of temples during our trip. So many, that we had been avoiding them here in India. Yet, Madurai definitely hosts one of most amazing religious structure in the world, the Meenakshi temple. Its dozen towers are fully covered with colorful statues that make you feel part of an out of space adventure movie. The inside of the temple is just as suprising as large arches connect the various sanctuaries. Though foreignes are not allowed in all parts,  we could observe many of the rituals practiced by the devotes, adding to the mysticism of the temple.  (click on pictures for high res)
