Popularly known as Athens of the East, Madurai, like Varanasi, is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in India. Situated on the banks of Vaigai River in Tamil Nadu, the city is renowned across the world for its Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple.


Madurai dons many hats. It is a pilgrim town, a popular tourist destination, a cultural hotspot, Pandyan imperial capital, besides being famous for its food and cuisine, impressive architecture, shopping and endearing people.
Madurai is known by several names. City of Junction (Koodal nagaram), City of Jasmine (Malligai maanagar), Temple city (Koil maanagar), City that never sleeps (Thoonga nagaram) and City of four junctions (Naanmada koodal) are among the soubriquets of the city.


The city even finds mention in the Tamil classical epic Silappatikaram. The epic revolves around Kannagi who avenges her husband’s death by destroying the Pandyan kingdom. The city’s recorded history goes back to the 3rd century BC. It is mentioned by Megasthenes, the Greek ambassador to India and Kautilya.

          


The Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple is the geographical centre and the fulcrum around which the daily life of the locals revolves. Laid out in the shape of square, a series of concentric streets culminating from the temple. The squares named after Tamil month names – Aadi, Chittirai, Avani-moola and Masi streets –have retained their traditional names. The original temple was sacked by Muslim invader Malik Kafur in 1310. The present structure is believed to have been built during 1623 to 1655 CE.


Besides being a pilgrimage town, Madurai is an important industrial hub of Tamil Nadu. Motorcycle major TVS group, IT and ITES majors like Satyam, textile industries and industrial units connected to automobiles are located in Madurai. The city also exports its famed jasmine flowers known as Madurai Malligai.

Described as the southernmost end of Tamil Nadu, the lands end of India or the point where the three seas meet, enchanting Kanniyakumari or Cape Comorin is one of the most popular tourist spots in the state and indeed, in the country. Part of the fascination is of course the fact that it is the very tip of the Indian peninsula and the confluence of the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean.

                   


The other part is that the nature is so spectacular at Kanniyakumari, that several other Indian beaches pale by comparison. Cape Comorin is at its best during Chitra Pournami (full moon day in April) when the sun and moon are face to face at the same horizon but other full moon days are also special when you can see the sun set and the moon rise almost simultaneously, as if by prior arrangement.

The southernmost tip of India, Kanyakumari, sometimes referred to as the Cape Comorin, is a tourist attraction and is also a place of great religious importance for the Hindus. Kanyakumari is a spectacular place where one can witness colourful sunrises and sunsets and it is the only place where tourists can feast their eyes witnessing the magnificent spectacle of the sun setting on the west and the moon rising on the east simultaneously from the same spot on full moon days. It is probably the only place in the world where one can see the confluence of three seas – the Indian Ocean, the Arabean Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Needless to say Kanyakumari attracts tourists in hordes throughout the year (2 million every year) to witness its sumptuousness and also to bask in its enduring glory.


                                        


With such impeccable credentials about Kanyakumari a group of 7 colleagues who were attending a workshop in Trivandrum (about 87 kms from Kanyakumari), took the opportunity that came on our way one afternoon and we hired a car and headed towards Kanyakumari. It took us nearly 2 ½ hours to cover the distance from Nagarcoil the administrative headquarters of Kanyakumari District as the slight drizzle hampered our onward journey. The sunset was scheduled at 6.17 pm and we reached the place before 5 pm. As expected the place was teeming with tourists of all hues who were waiting to witness the sunset.
