Join us on a walk through the ancient city of Madurai, and chance upon her stories; of fickle kings and towering monuments; of whimsical Gods and extraordinary mortals; some set a millennia ago and some of a more recent vintage.

Madurai, a flourishing market town since at least the 2nd century BC, the centre of power for many dynasties and a seat of divinity from time immemorial. In a city that has been so much to so many, is it any wonder that you stumble upon stories wherever you go? Why would a street in Madurai be named after a man who had a piece of its history razed to the ground? How could a bad case of the sniffles have shaped a city’s history or a teeny little toad halted the grandiose plans of a mighty king?

Join Storytrails on a short walk through this ancient city and chance upon her stories; stories that span the length of time – some set a millennia ago and some of a more recent vintage; stories that zigzag the obscure lines separating history and myth; stories of people who made Madurai, and of those who were her undoing; stories of fickle kings and towering monuments, of whimsical Gods and extraordinary mortals; stories that take you behind the scenes for a glimpse into the city’s heart.
