I had to come Madurai from Kanyakumari. After a bit of inquiry I decided to take train though the multiple buses options were also there. Train takes 4 to 5 hours to reach Madurai. This train all classes like sleeper, AC and general. I travelled in general class to experience the culture better. There was no seat left because I reached station just 20 minutes before departure. Overall experience was good, train was on time and journey was full of local crowed.

The magnificent architectural marvel is a pure bliss. Once you enter the temple you will be amazed and surprised at every corner. The goddess temple has two types of darshans. Common free darshan takes around 1 hour however special darshan will take few minutes less. There are other things to...more »

We booked a 10 seater traveller and were travelling all around Tamil Nadu. Places like Rameshwaram, Kanyakumari, Pondicherry, Madurai etc were all travelled in the same bus. The driver was hospitable and gave a good guidance at all the places where we moved.

We took bus from Madurai Bus Stop to Kanyakumari. We dont have any reservation to Kanyakumari. But lucky enough to get a semi sleeper bus operated by Tamilnadu road transport. Bus was okay and it started at 10:30 pm. We reached Kanyakumari by 4 am. I thought I was going to miss the sunrise. But thankful to the driver who reached the destination on time.

We took an AC coach to travel from Madurai to Kanya kumari. This made our journey comfortable and free from tiredness. And something to say about SRM Travels we were so much impressed with the travels. They were punctual enough and the bus was with superior quality and luxurious too. Over all we had a luxurious and sophisticated journey. This is well suite for long travel.

It takes 7 hours in Bus from Madurai to Kanyakumari. 10 and half hours in Bus from Kanyakumari to Rameshwaram. 6-7 hours in Bus/Car from Rameshwaram to Kodaikanal. You have only ordinary Tamil Nadu Govt Buses plying from Madurai to Kanyakumari and Rameshwaram. It's ok to try the bus - only if you are a travel freak, enjoy the green all around you and enjoy the adventurous travel. Otherwise, it's hectic.
