Welcome to Arulmigu Meenakshi Chokkanatha Swamy Temple
Arulmigu meenakshi chokkanatha swamy temple is located in south side of madurai.
Just 48 km down National Highway 45B from Madurai there once stood an international trading centre named ‘Sengattuirukkai Idathuvali’ under the geographical division of Venbu Naadu. The town flourished in the medieval period. Inscriptions dating to the 13th century refer to four streets that were occupied by the members of the merchant community — Veerapandiyaperuntheru, Vikramapandyaperuntheru, Srivallabhaperuntheru alias Desiyasiriyapattanam and Palivilangilperuntheru.
Merchants from Ceylon were supposed to have settled in the Vikramapandyaperuntheru and an international trading group, Thisaiyayiratthuainootruvar, occupied Srivallabhaperuntheru. If you are curious about the present name and status of this trading centre, come to the well-known town of Aruppukottai.
