Tourist Places in MADURAI (Tamil Nadu) – Alagar Kovil: (21 kms.)

Alagar Kovil

Alagar Kovil: (21 kms.) Here is the shrine of Vishnu dedicated to Azhagar, also known as Soudararaja Perumal, because of his immense beauty. It is said that Vishnu came down to this place to give away Meenakshi in marriage to Sundareshwarar. The beauty of the temple lies in the exquisite sculptures in the front hall. Some of them surpass the workmanship found in the Meenakshi temple. An interesting feature of this shrine is the set of eighteen steps leading to the temple of Kannappaswamy, the deity of Kallars, where devotees cannot dare to tell a lie. The adjacent hill has a temple of Subramanya and a few water springs.
