We had an amazing time with Mr.Dhanabalan. He was very knowledgeable about all in Sri Meenakshi Temple in Madurai.We had enough time at the temple and everything was explained well. He was very attentive and even protected us from the touts who were harassing us in the street. Would very much recommend.

We visited the temple in Madurai with Dhanabalan and learnt a lot about Tamil history and tradition as well as current religious practices. We were so happy with the experience that we decided to go back the same day to see the night procession, also highly recommended for the opportunity to listen to classical Tamil music. Dhanabalan is very passionate about the art and history of his country and he passes this on to the visitors, overall it was a great experience!

Me and my friend really enjoyed the Temple Evening Ceremony Tour with Dhanabalan. He explained a lot about the cultural and spiritual meanings of the temple. Dhanabalan made sure that we had a good view of the ceremony inside the temple. It was very interesting and fun to do, a must during travel in Madurai!

I heard Madurai has long long history. To fully feel this old city, I wanted to know about history of Madurai and searched in google but I couldnโ€™t understand that much. So I tried to find the guide and I met Dhanabalan. I was the only tourist. But I did his best and I can feel that. We supposed to have 2 hours for tour but after tour I check the time and it was almost 3 hours. He knew a lot of things not only about the temple but also about Tamil nadu and India. He answered all of my questions. It was like a lecture of Professor Dhanabalan. He told me lots of stories. I hope you can meet Dhanabalan in Madurai and have a great time with him. I highly recommend him. He was the best guide.

I really enjoyed the tour with Dhanabalan. He is very clear explaining the things, shared lots of stories and answered all my questions. Also he was very helpful in the visit itself taking care of the formalities. I was alone so I had a private tour that ended up being much longer than the temple itself and I really enjoyed it. If you are in Madurai, sign up for his tours and you wonโ€™t regret!
