Documented in the 3rd century BCE by the Greek ambassador Megasthenes Madurai is perhaps one of the oldest and continuously inhabited cities of the world. Located strategically on the flat and fertile plain watered by the river Vaigai, there is archaeological evidence of the city's trade with ancient Romans.
The city is built around the Meenakshi Amman temple, which was designed as a humungous, walled, self- sufficient city in itself - able to close off against invaders and sustain itself with ingeniously planned storages of food , water and residences in case of long sieges. Another historical monument worthy of mention is the palace of Tirumalai Nayak. The larger city is connected by regular, concentric, quadrangular streets to the temple - the social and geographical nucleus of Madurai.
