FYI - I was looking for that inspirational sign board! Perhaps, you can post a pic of the same?
Thanks govigov, Unfortunately, I do not have a pic of that sign board at the moment. Fellow BHPians can kindly help me with the pic

By the way, is there any specific season to enjoy these places better with lesser crowd? Or let me ask - how would be a early summer trip with kids? Doable without much prep like reservations?
Thanks abirnale, It is doable without much preparations. I had not done any prior hotel bookings. Except for Kanyakumari, where you need to be a little careful, other places are quite fine. To give you an idea, I had been to these places during the Shabarimala time when there was a fair amount of rush in most places.

Probably due to the crowd you might have missed seeing the entire Srirangam temple. It much bigger than the other two temples.

Hi Raju, Yes, in terms of total covered area of temple, I mean the temple avaran, my personal perception was that Madurai Meenakshi temple was the largest. However, if we take into account the external multiple layers of walls as I mentioned, Srirangam, would be the largest functioning temple in the world!
