La visite avec la cérémonie en nocturne était très impressionnante et très intéressante. Dhanabalan a répondu de manière très complète à l'ensemble des questions et est revenu sur certaines explications afin que tout le monde comprenne ce qu'il se passait. A faire sans hésiter si l'on veut comprendre la signification de ce temple et des croyances qui y sont associées.

We spent a whole wonderful day in Madurai with Dhanabalan. No matter whether it was the palace, the banana market or the large temple during the day or at night, Dhanabalan showed and explained everything to us very patiently. We immediately noticed how educated and experienced Dhanabalan is. With his humorous manner, the day together was a highlight of our trip through Tamil Nadu. Thank you very much and see you next time!

I highly recommend this tour and this guide, Mr. Dhanabalan Perumal from guruwalks . He is knowledgable and a good storyteller . I would specially like to mention his professionalism . I was a solo traveller. The guide conducted this tour , only for me, that too very enthusiastically, even after the other group that had booked this tour cancelled their booking. A big thanks for the experience !

If you want to get closer to understanding Sanatan Dharma and Hinduism, you must visit this temple. It is beautifully managed and has great calmness. Recommended - Take a local guide and understand the history and story behind the temple. No mobile phones allowed - best thing to have ever happened to temples. No noise, no people posing or screaming. You can store your phone safely in locker outside the temple. Water bottles are allowed.

Bala is a great tour guide, he could answer every question to the indian culture and tradition! The tour was entertaining and he took care of everything (rides, water, even appropriate clothes for temples and bananas from the market). I can only recommend to explore Madurai with his tour.

Dhanabalan was our guide for 1,5 days in Madurai. We had such a great and relaxing experience for the start of our trip to India! Bala is very knowledgable, patient, reliable, helpful and speaks very good English. Highly recommended if you would like to learn many interesting things about Tamil Nadu and Madurai.

Experiencing the Meenakshi Temple with our expert guide, Dhanabalan, was nothing short of extraordinary! He brought the temple's rich history and unique architecture to life, sharing the significance of every ceremony we witnessed with a level of expertise borne out of his personal experiences. Dhanabalan left no stone unturned to ensure we had an exceptional journey. He adeptly navigated us to the most distinctive and sacred parts of the temple accessible to us as international visitors. His thoughtful gestures, like taking care of our shoes at the start and arranging our auto rickshaw ride home, added an extra layer of comfort and ease to our visit. In summary, the tour wasn't merely worthwhile - it was a transformative experience. I strongly recommend booking a tour with Dhanabalan to any prospective visitors. Without his guidance, you risk missing out on the depth and majesty that the Meenakshi Temple has to offer. An unguided visit simply won't compare to the enlightening experience Dhanabalan provides.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the renowned Madurai Meenakshi Amma Temple, and my experience was made truly memorable thanks to the incredible services of Mr. Dhanabalan. With fluency in both English and Tamil, Dhanabalan approached me and immediately showcased a genuine passion for his role as a tour guide. Dhanabalan's inquisitive nature and dedication to learning truly stood out throughout the entire tour. He took us to every corner of the temple, meticulously explaining every intricate detail, from its architectural marvels to the latest developments. His extensive knowledge was truly impressive, and he spared no effort in sharing it with us. What struck me most about Dhanabalan was his thirst for knowledge. He consistently went beyond the ordinary, delving into research and discovering fascinating facts that set him apart from other tour guides. This quest for continuous improvement and unique insights greatly benefited us as visitors. We were fortunate to hear him passionately share his wealth of knowledge about the temple and its associated stories and history.Dhanabalan's honesty and genuine commitment to his craft were evident in every interaction. His willingness to go the extra mile and provide comprehensive explanations added immense value to the tour experience. It was evident that he genuinely cared about his role in guiding visitors and ensuring their understanding and appreciation of the temple's significance. We wholeheartedly recommend Dhanabalan's tour guiding services to anyone visiting the Madurai Meenakshi Amma Temple. His exceptional dedication, inquisitiveness, and unwavering passion for knowledge make him a truly outstanding guide. Prepare to be enlightened, engaged, and inspired as you embark on an enriching journey through the temple's wonders with Dhanabalan as your guide. Thank you, Dhanabalan, for an unforgettable experience!

Mr. Dhanabalan Perumal is very knowledgeable and knows his work the best. He guided us throughout the temple in a great manner and make sure we had an amazing experience while performing rituals and Darshan of Meenakshi Temple. He aslo make Darshan of Abhishekam possible for us. It was god blessing that we were connected to him and we would recommend him to all visiting Meenakshi Temple Madurai. Abhishek Kothari

Merci pour cette visite guidée incroyable!! Dhanabalan a été au petit soin pour nous. Les explications étaient très clairs. Nous avons fait la visite guidée la journée et la cérémonie le soir et je recommande de faire les deux car cela est très différent. Merci encore pour ce moment et pour la passion partagée
