Visit Karur

One of the ancient cities of Tamil Nadu, Karur, was ruled by the Cheras, Cholas, the Naickers and the British. Some of the proof indicates that Karur may have been the centre of old jewellery-making and gem setting, as per the findings of various excavations. As per Hindu mythology, Brahma began the work of creation here.

Visit Kodaikanal Lake

For those who enjoy boating and fishing, Kodaikanal Lake is the ideal location. Just rent a boat and enjoy boating and fishing facilities at the scenic Kodaikanal Lake. However, do keep in mind that permission is required from the concerned authorities to enjoy any activity.

Visit Kurinji Andavar Temple

Dedicated to Lord Murugan, the Kurinji Andavar Temple is located in Kodaikanal. According to Tamil literature, Kurinji translates to ‘hill region’ and Andavar refers to ‘God’. Another interesting fact is that this temple blossoms with Kurinji flowers once every twelve years, making for a rare sight.

Visit Palani

Situated 1,068 ft above sea level, lies the pictorial Palani Hills. Palani is known for two great temples, the old ThiruAvinangudi temple that has been celebrated in songs and stories. Another temple is the more recent Sri Dandayudhapani temple which lies at the foot of the hills and is dedicated to Lord Subramanya.

Visit Silver Cascade Falls

The Silver Cascade Falls are a perfect stopover and are located some 8 km away from Kodaikanal Lake. The excess water from Kodai Lake surges down in the form of a roaring 180 ft high waterfall.

Visit Thalaiyar Falls

Also known as the Rat-Tail Falls, the Thalaiyar Falls is 975 ft high and is the third highest falls in India. This mesmerising fall is inaccessible to the general public as there is no road connectivity. However, one can witness its beauty while climbing up the Ghat Road to Kodaikanal.
