Posting this tip based on my recent journey.
.
For going to Arulmigu Kallazhagar Thirukkovil (Azhagar Kovil) in Alagarmalai, bus number "44" will be available in good frequency in front (platform - 1) entrance, which takes around 45 minutes - an hour(max), and will drop at the entrance of the temple. Ticket cost is Rs. 31/- per person. And return direction, the same bus you can get down near madurai junction.

For going to Pazhamuthircholai Arulmigu Solaimalai Murugan Thirukkovil, from Azhagar Kovil, which is roughly 3.5 kms, buses run by HRCE of TN govt is available at the entrance of the temple in every 15 - 30 mts frequency at Rs. 10/- per person. Also, there will be a staircase/walkway at the entrance of the temple, one can even walk in that to reach the temple.
.
Both temples close by 8 PM in the night.
.
And if one has to come to Arulmigu Meenakshi Amman Thirukkovil, from Alagarkovil by bus no 44, can get down at simmakkal bus stop, and it is walkable from there, around 500 meters.
.
And if one has to go to MGR bus stand (Mattuthavani), direct buses will be available but frequency is not that much, if direct buses are not available, one can take 44 bus and change at goripalayam for MGR bus stand (Mattuthavani).

Too expensive Retiring rooms. I guess one can get good hotels in less price than this.

Alight here for the ever famous Meenakshi Temple. It is dedicated to Parvati who is known as Meenakshi and her consort, Shiva, named here as Sundareswarar. The temple forms the heart and lifeline of the 2500 year old city of Madurai.
