Madurai Cityscape

Pictures taken from Taj Gateway Hotel in Madurai. The hotel is located on a hillock which provides a good view of the city. Far from the maddening crowd we spent a relaxed holiday here. Towards the left side of the picture you can see the lighted gopurams of the temple.

Zooming into the transmission tower.
