Madurai:

Devi Meenakshi Madurai Meenakshi Temple - Famous pilgrimage of Devi Meenakshi: The Meenakshi Temple of Madurai is the place where the divine marriage of Goddess Meenakshi and Lord Sundareswara was held. According to legend, Vidyavati was an ardent devotee of Devi Parvati. Moved by her devotion, Goddess Parvati appeared before her in the form of a young girl and told her to ask for a boon. Vidyavati asked the boon that the Goddess be born as her daughter in the same form as she has appeared before her. Goddess Parvati told her that in her next birth when she (Vidyavati) will be the wife of Malayathuvasa Pandyan, She will be born as her daughter. Vidyavati was born as Kanchanamalai in her next birth and was married to king Malayathuvasan. They had no sons. In order to get a son, they performed a yagya. From the sacrificial fire, a three year old girl came out. Malayathuvasan was disappointed that he did not get a son. Also the girl has three breasts. A divine voice said that the girl be named as Thadathagai, and She should be brought up like a son. Her third breast would disappear when She will meet her husband. So the girl was brought up like a prince. When She came of age, the king performed her coronation as his successor. Thadathagai embarked on a march of conquests and everywhere She was victorious. Finally She marched to Mount Kailash, an abode of Lord Shiva. She defeated the Bhootaganas. Finally Shiva appeared in the scene of the battle. When Thadathagai saw Lord Shiva, her face lighted up, her third breast disappeared and She stood still. Lord Shiva told Her to return to the capital where He promised to come to marry Her on the eighth day. The divine marriage was celebrated in Madurai, which was attended by the devas and the sages.

- Madurai is located in the Madurai district of Tamil Nadu.
