MADURAI, TAMIL NADU, INDIA

During the 3rd century BC, Megasthanes a Greek historian visited Madurai. Later on many people came from western parts like Rome, Greece etc. and established trade with the Pandya kings. By 10th century AD Madurai was captured by Cholas and ruled it till the beginning of the 13th century. Then Pandyas regained it in 1223 AD. For a short period it was also under the rule of Tughlak. Then it fell to the Vijayanagar dynasty and ruled by their Governors called Nayaks. But in 1530 AD, the Nayaks became independent and took control over the area. During the reign of Thirumalai Nayak (1623-1659) the Raja Gopuram of the Meenakshi Amman Temple was made to the present state, The Pudu Mandapam and The Thirumalai Nayakar's Palace were also constructed during this period.
