Living in Madurai

The Indian city of Madurai is one of the oldest in the world. It is situated in the Tamil Nadu state in the very south of India and given its ancient culture, expats living in Madurai will quickly see why it is often referred to as "The City of Festivals". The city is built around the Meenakshi Amman Temple and this is in many ways still the cultural heart of Madurai, while the city's incredible array of other temples gives it an incredible religious and cultural atmosphere, with the Sri Meenakshi Temple and the historic Aayiram Kaal Mandapam Temple especially worth visiting. As an expat living in Madurai, you will feel the vividness and vibrancy of India's culture, with an array of sights, smells and tastes to give even the most well-traveled expatriate in Madurai as much to take in as you could wish for.

Moving to Madurai

While the city is well connected by road and rail networks, most expatriates moving to Madurai will want to fly into the nearby Madurai Airport. This is served by flights from major Indian hub airports as well as flights from Colombo and Dubai. On or even before travelling to the city, you may like to get in touch with other expats living in Madurai for information about city life or even to organize an early meet-up; this is easily done via the InterNations website. You can get in touch with the city's global minds via our discussion groups, forums or private messages, and find out more about the city from the international network there. Settling into any Indian city is as intense an experience as it is a enjoyable one, and you may well be grateful for the chance to sit back, take stock and chat with other expatriates in Madurai. On the other hand, the city offers so much to enjoy that you may equally prefer to simply take it all in.

Working in Madurai

The city has a mixed economy, with a strong agriculture sector, a growing IT industry, plenty of manufacturing and busy religious and tourism sectors. It is also home to India's famous TVS motorcycles. After hours, there is a vast and vibrant food culture; the city's nightlife is legendary, gaining the city another nickname, "The City that Never Sleeps". With all this vibrancy and culture to explore, boredom is something no expatriate working in Madurai should worry about, but for any expatriation issues or questions, you can find plenty of helpful advice in our Expat Magazine on the InterNations website. Whether you're wondering about expat finance, cross-cultural communication or even cultural shock, we have plenty of information as well as content by other InterNations members to help you ensure a smooth landing in this vibrant, beautiful city.
