Madurai Culture

Madurai Culture - Madurai is proud of their cultural heritage

There is rapid westernization but the people are not done away with their age old custom and traditions. The value system of the people of Madurai has a strong foundation. The people of Madurai are hospitable, friendly and honest. In Madurai women usually wear Dhavani or Thavani (half Sari), and Sarees. Salwar Kameez, a North-Indian ethnic wear for women, has also made inroads into the city's populace. In the recent times, people have also started preferring western wear, but they are not brand conscious. This also stresses on the fact that the people prefer simplicity.
