Madurai


View India 2012 on a2lin04's travel map.

Another very nice place, rich in history. Madurai.
It tooks us only 3 hours to reach Madurai by bus from Kumilly. Madurai is a city where there are 2 temples together surrounded by 5 doors (1 in North, 1 in South, 1 in West and 2 East).

the temple is closed for the day due to Shiva festival... Anyway we went so to the Palace to see the light and sound show...

Then we went to Gandhi Museum. They have in this museum the last close that Gandhi has worn. In this museum was related the story of the independence of India, and we were quite surprised at which point they hate the British... In all the comments they are extremely severe and never talked about some good points that it could have brought. It was more a chock when we were after in Pondicherry because there at the opposite they loved the French occupancy and there are still lot of french living there...
Anyway, Gandhi..
