One of India's oldest cities that has been inhabited continuously is Madurai, the cultural centre of Tamil Nadu. It is known as the "Lotus City" because it was designed and constructed in the shape of a lotus, and Pandya monarchs ruled over it for the majority of its existence. The Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai is well-known. It is devoted to the goddess Meenakshi and has a shrine for her husband, Sundareshwarar. Thiruparankundram is one of several other historic temples in Madurai. It is one of the significant older temples to Lord Muruga and is situated on a hillside about 8 kilometres outside of the city. Due to its commercial connections with ancient Rome, the region has a rich cultural history. Madurai features vibrant bazaars and delicious street food, and heritage tours are held daily.
