Meenakshi Amman Temple
Meenakshi Amman Temple, also known as Minakshi-Sundareshwara Temple, is one of the oldest and most important temples in India. Located in the city of Madurai, the temple has great mythological and historical significance. It is believed that Lord Shiva assumed the form of Sundareswarar (the handsome one) and married Parvati (Meenakshi) at the site where the temple is currently located. Renowned for its amazing architecture, the Meenakshi temple was nominated as one of the wonders of the world, but failed to make the list of the "Seven Wonders of the World". However, the temple is definitely one of the "Wonders of India". It is also one of south India's top attractions with thousands of devotees crowding it every day. During the "Tirukalyanam Festival", which takes place over a period of 10 days, the temple attracts more than one million devotees. Even though many people visit it every day, the temple is well maintained and was named the "Best Iconic Place of Swachh" (the cleanest iconic place) in India. According to a legend, Meenakshi emerged from a "Yajna" (sacred fire) when she was a three-year-old girl. The "Yajna" was performed by a king named Malayadwaja Pandya along with his wife Kanchanamalai. Since the royal couple had no children, the King offered his prayers to Lord Shiva, asking him to grant them a son. But to her dismay, a three-breasted girl emerged from the sacred fire. When Malayadwaja and his wife expressed concern about the girl's abnormal appearance, a divine voice ordered them not to worry about the girl's physical appearance. They were also informed that the girl's third breast will disappear as soon as she meets her future husband. The relieved king appointed her Meenakshi and, in due course, crowned her as his successor. Meenakshi ruled the ancient city of Madurai and also went on to capture the neighboring kingdoms. Legend has it that he even captured Indralok, the abode of Lord Indra, and was also on his way to capture Kailash, the abode of Lord Shiva. When Shiva appeared before her, Meenakshi's third breast disappeared and she knew she had met her half-orange. Shiva and Meenakshi returned to Madurai where their wedding took place. It is said that the wedding was attended by all the gods and goddesses. Since Parvati herself had assumed the form of Meenakshi, Lord Vishnu, Parvati's brother, handed it over to Lord Shiva. Even today, the wedding ceremony is celebrated every year as "Chithirai Thiruvizha", which is also known as "Tirukalyanam" (the big wedding). The history of the Meenakshi temple dates back to the first century AD.C. and scholars claim that it is as old as the city itself. Kulashekarar Pandyan, a king who ruled the Pandyan dynasty, is said to have built the temple according to instructions given in his dream by Lord Shiva. Some religious texts belonging to the first to the fourth century AD.C speak of the temple and describe it as the central structure of the city. Texts dating from the early sixth century describe the temple as a place where scholars met to discuss important issues. However, the temple as it stands today was rebuilt throughout the sixteenth century, as it was destroyed by Muslim invaders. During the fourteenth century E.C., Malik Kafur, a commander of the Delhi Sultanate, led his army to most of southern India and looted many temples, including the famous Meenakshi Temple. Valuables such as gold, silver and precious gems were brought to Delhi. Since temples in those days had an abundance of valuables, most of the temples were destroyed and left in ruins. When the Vijayanagar Empire seized Madurai after defeating the Muslim Sultanate, the temple was rebuilt and reopened. The temple was further expanded in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries by Vishwanatha Nayakar, a king of the Nayaka dynasty. According to the researchers, while rebuilding the temple, the rulers of the Nayaka dynasty followed the architectural style of 'Silpa Shastras'. 'Silpa Shastras' is a set of architectural laws found in ancient texts. The temple was once again expanded by Thirumalai Nayak, who ruled Madurai from 1623 to 1655. During his reign, many "Mandapams" (aisles with pillars) were built. Later, the temple was expanded by many later rulers of Nayaka before the arrival of the British East India Company. The temple was again degraded and parts of it were destroyed during British rule. In 1959, Tamil Hindus began restoration work by collecting donations and collaborating with historians and engineers. The temple was completely restored in 1995.

China Bans Funeral Strippers
The Chinese government is in the news this week as the country's ministry of culture announces that they will "crack down on 'stripping' and other acts of illegal business performance market". The statement was released after controversial videos were circulated featuring paid strippers disrobing in front of parents and children at a Handan funeral - resulting in arrests and a $11,300 fine. (I know. This is a lot to process.) Apparently, funeral strippers have turned into quite a trend in both China and Taiwan, as the region's bereaved have been shelling out some serious cash to pay for strip shows that can go as long as two-and-a-half hours. According to Everett Zhang, assistant professor of East Asian Studies at Princeton University, funerals in the area are treated like one lavish party, celebrating with as many people as possible to ensure that their loved one is sent off properly to the afterlife. "In China, when the person who dies is very old and has lived a long life, this kind of occasion becomes purely a celebration." But why strippers?! According to China's official Xinhua news agency, strippers are hired "to attract more mourners," adding that these racy performances "add to the fun". Blame it on cultural difference, but I can see why something like this would deserve to be shut down. However, while Zhang sees where this situation could be problematic, he's particularly surprised at the bold measures the government is taking to put an end to it. "Local people would not be happy about the arrests. That would be really intrusive and offensive." So what do you think? Should the Chinese government be allowed to arrest and fine the bereaved hiring funeral strippers, or should it be left to the family's discretion? Let me know in the comments below, and for more WTF news, follow my WTF Street Journal collection.

How To Make Sweet Red Bean Soup (紅豆湯) from China's Guangdong Province (Vegan)
This weekend, I attended my very first traditional Chinese wedding, as two friends who I study Korean with ended up falling in all sorts of love and decided to spend the rest of their lives together. The wedding was completely amazing. I loved being able to meet their families, learn all about their specific wedding customs and, of course, eat a ridiculous amount of Cantonese food. (In Chinese tradition, weddings can serve anywhere from 10 - 12 courses. Ours stopped right at 11!) One of the very last dishes we ate was Hóng Dòu Tāng, a sweet red bean soup served in a thin broth with simmered lotus seeds. I have seen this dish around, especially at the Taiwanese tea house I'm often frequenting, and couldn't wait to try it myself. The soup is a wonderful combination of sweet and savory, and the lotus seed has a nice nutty flavor and texture similar to peanuts. You should be able to find all of these ingredients at most Asian markets. This recipe can be made without lotus seeds, of course, but lotus seeds are full of good nutrition and are constantly used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat anything from insomnia to gastrointestinal problems - which is why it's the perfect bowl to end the night with! ------------------------------------------------------ Sweet Red Bean Soup (Hóng Dòu Tāng) 1 cup red beans (You can probably find these canned, but fresh is best if possible.) 15 dried lotus seeds 1 piece dried tangerine peel 4 - 5 tablespoons brown sugar Water 1 - 2 tablespoons fine glutinous rice flour in equal parts of water for thickening to your desired consistency Some coconut milk for drizzling over soup 1. Wash red beans in several rinses of water until water runs clear of dirt and grit. Put into a pot, fill with water to a height equivalent to the length of your index finger - roughly 2 inches - above the beans. Bring to a boil, and let par-boil for 15 minutes. Turn off heat, cover with lid, and let it sit for half an hour to let the hot water soften the tough bean husks. 2. Meanwhile, soak dried tangerine peel in water for 15 minutes or until soft. Using the blunt end of a small knife, scrape off the pith on the inside of the peel. Wash clean, and then wash the lotus seeds as well. 3. Bring the pot of red beans back to a boil, add the washed tangerine peel, lotus seeds, and half of the brown sugar. Reduce to medium heat, let simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the beans are soft. Skim foam off the surface as it forms. Add water if the liquid reduces too much. When beans are soft and cracked open, do a taste test and add sugar to your desired sweetness. 4. To thicken the soup slightly, stir the glutinous rice flour solution into the soup, little by little, letting the heat cook through before adding more. Stop when desired consistency is reached. Dish out into serving bowls, drizzled with some coconut milk, if desired.
