MATHURA OF SOUTH: MEENAKSHI TEMPLE
India is a land spread by a huge number of temple little and large, some basic and some wonderful, some cutting edge and some the tradition of a rich legacy. One such temple attracts guest’s gathering to its overlap with its sacredness, history, and its lovely craftsmanship. This is the Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple.
The Madurai Meenakshi Amman temple is committed to the Hindu God Lord Shiva just as his associate Parvati as Meenakshi. Parvati is loved as Meenakshi and Shiva is revered as Sundareshwara in this temple. Meenakshi in a real sense makes an interpretation of in Tamil into, "the one with fishlike eyes". Both the gods include separate hallowed places inside the bigger temple complex. What is surprising here is that the managing god is Parvati as Meenakshi while Lord Shiva is content to take on a supporting role!
