... Shroud of Turin (although hopefully Gandhi's cloth is not a fake). This is definitely the seed of a new religion, if it isn't already in bloom. I'm all for venerating Gandhi for his remarkable accomplishments, but his depiction in popular Indian culture has definitely moved into legend. He was believed to be a demigod in less educated regions of India while he lived and now the messianic myths are free to multiply. It's no different to deifying ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFortune Pandiyan Hotel Madurai
It is one of the best hotels in Madurai with good facilities. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had a good night sleep after a long drive from Bangalore. We were 3 families with 4 kids and had a good time. Unfortunately could not spend much time as we were halted enroute to Kovalam. There is a good pool and also some lawns around for the children to play.
The morning breakfast spread was good with both indian and continental. The overall rates were high - however with the assurance of welcome group , it is worth it.
