South Cities

Further South is the charming town of Tiruchirapalli, whose landmark is the temple built on a rock, rising abruptly to over 66 meters.

8 km from Tiruchirapalli is the island of Srirangam, which contains one of South India's biggest temples, surrounded by 7 walls. The temple and its precincts actually from a township.

About 350 km South of Madras, or 50 km East of Tiruchi, is Thanjavur, well-known for its great 11th century Siva Temple. The spire of the temple, considered masterpiece of workmanship, rises to 58 meters.

Perhaps even better known is the great Meenakshi Temple in Madurai, 552 km South of Madras. The highest of the temple's ten towers is 46 meters. The temple has a hall of thousand pillars and some of its life-size sculptures are marvels of artistic skill.
