The city has been described as the "lotus-shaped" city in one of the Tamil publications. Since time immemorial, Madurai has been a well-planned city in terms of road and building construction.
The Meenakshi Amman temple is the central point for the formation of all roads. The Meenakshi Amman temple is one of the largest in India. There is always something going on here: ceremonies, musicians playing, weddings, prostrate pilgrims, festivals, making it an attractive place to spend time and enjoy temple life. The temple is the geographical and ritual center of the ancient city of Madurai and is divided into several concentric quadrangular enclosures contained by high masonry walls. It is one of the few temples in Tamil Nadu that has four entrances in four directions. This temple has four towers, each intricately decorated with thousands of colorful figures. There are eight more towers and a hall with a thousand decorated pillars.
