1. Sri Meenakshi Temple
Arguably one of the most beautiful and significant Hindu temples, with great architecture and lovely sculptures. Non-Hindus can visit all spaces, except the inner temple. There is enough to enjoy and experience outside. Do not miss sitting on the steps of the tank to admire the intricate and exquisite decoration of the towers. The Meenakshi Amman temple is one of the most important sites both from the Religious and architectural points of view. A must for those travelling in South India. I would certainly recommend this temple visit. Only Mobile cameras can use inside the temple No options for DSLR..footwares and Bagages including SLR cameras can be kept.
2. Brihadeeshwara Temple
Marvelous engineering work by our ancient Kings 1000 years earlier, the 80 MT single stone on the Gopuram and 2nd largest Nandi 13 ft height 25 ft length after Lepalshi in Andhra Pradesh which is 15 ft height & 27 ft in length. The 1008 Nandi on the outer compound wall 108 Sivalinga’s, height of temple 216 ft denote the importance of number “9” in India. Very well maintained temple. It was less crowded / it can handle any number of people. It has so many reason why it is should be the ultimate wonder! Even among the entire current world wonders list, all the architecture has shadow that falls onto the ground but this temple is not! Could anyone using modern technology create the same like temple again? It has perfect architecture the modern technology cant built!
