Our next outstation tour will be to Madurai and will be from the evening of January 2nd 2016 to the morning of the 6th. The emphasis will be on a holistic approach to Madurai starting from its ancient history till recent times.

A partial list of places that will be covered will include the Meenakshi Amman temple (but of course), the Koodal Azhagar temple, Tiruparamkunram, Azhagarmalai and the Tirumalai Nayak Mahal. However what is also being planned is a secular history tour of Madurai that will look at its place in the performing arts, British rule and the Independence struggle, as also it’s industrial history. As part of the itinerary we will also have a young musician travelling with us to take us through the rich poems and songs on Madurai.

The idea is to travel by train (2tier AC). Bookings for these open by September 1st and so we need to close our tour bookings by then. Those interested may please register at for further details.
