Madurai in Tamil Nadu is a big town. Renowned for the world-famous Meenakshi Hindu temple, amongst others, it’s a haven of pilgrims from all over the world and is busy throughout the year.
But the temples aren’t the sole reason to visit. Thriving markets against faded colonial buildings are a haven of colour and culture. With entirely separate banana, onion and flower markets, a wander through the furiously chaotic streets is a must. Be prepared for an assault of all the senses. As a photographer, I could have spent weeks here. Every angle is a new image!
