It Is Madurai

 Madurai,  breathequietly on the banks
of River Vaigai, remains awake the entire 
night, busy as a trading center.

An icon of the hoary past
steeped in culture and religion
 its existence goes beyond 

before Christ B,C and 
anno Domini  A.D. unfathomable 
to any calculation,

It has been the Capital
 of the Pandya Kingdom,
 has hosted assemblies 

of scholars  who presented 
literary works of  high standard,
 literature flourished, reached 
the pinnacle  of glory.

The gathering  in different periods
  named as Three Sangams, head,
 middle and last, where thousands of poems
were read.

The town hosts scores of temples
 not small in any sense, massive
 and majestic,  greatness and power

 compete vigorously which one 
 is upbeat none can define. The town
  till date lives with extreme modesty,

making a steady progress,
with an eye on preservation
its antiquity, piety and discipline 
the three cardinal validations,
