Travel to nearby Kumily and walk among the cardamom plantations. Stay in a cheap hotel in Madurai so you have plenty to spend at the spice market.

Recurring Festivals and Events

If there's one thing that the people of India like to do, it's celebrate. This means there are many festivals to take part in throughout the year. In the spring, spend two weeks at the Chithirai Festival. This celebration marks the beginning of the Tamil year and the people honor Lord Vishnu as he came to his sister's wedding. The fall festival of Navratri is a nine-day event celebrating the Hindu deity Durga. People commonly set up steps and place idols on them, make food for each other, and decorate cars with banana leaves and broken pumpkins. In the winter, be sure to book Madurai rental cars to visit the Periyar Tiger Preserve and Sanctuary and watch these regal animals in their natural habitat.
