Pronounce the word MADURAI, upraises anon Mother MEENAKSHI ready to announce that it is her august seat, held dear to heart since time immemorial, and will live there eternally beside her Lord Sundareswar, enshrined in a bigger shrine, but an integral part of her spacious and beautiful sculptured mandir. The words Madurai and Meenakshi are so inextricably blended that they bear no separation. They are not
two in ONE, but ONE and one WHOLE only that can never division, nor desire living yield in isolation. They are like lord Maheswar in Ardhanareeswara combination, resenting segregation and preferring enviable union for ever. So, mere remembrance of Madurai flashes across our minds the enchanting sublime figure of Goddess Meenakshi in standing posture, adorned with resplendent dazzling jewellery and shimmering colourful fabrics, with a lovely green parrot perching on the bouquet held in her right hand, and left hand gracefully hanging down below her alluring hip. This life - size well - chiselled image radiates love and compassion through her large, black enchanting eyes, formed like fishes to look upon her adorers with full gaze for showering munificence, just as the mother fish feeds her progeny with mere sight.
