Madurai, though more known as a temple town, it's also the centre of many traditional crafts. In this tour, you will be able to visit the workshops of the craftsmen and learn about their work and way of life where you can witness stone sculpting first hand. Although this traditional craft practised by the Vishwakarma community has gone to a decline, there are still around 3000 sculptors in the Madurai area, carving beautiful sculptures in various types of stones which mostly are for religious use and include representations of popular deities.
Visit a Handloom Town to see the process of spinning and weaving of the beautiful Madurai cotton and silk sarees where you can witness Sungudi Sari Dyeing, which is a form of knotted tie-and-dye which has been practised in Madurai since the 16th century. Learn more about the famous Golu Dolls, which are mostly used during festivals, particularly the Golu dolls bought by women for Navaratri celebrations.
