We started early morning from Cochin and reached Rameswaram in the afternoon. After the Rameswaram Temple darshan, reached Madurai in the night (we could'nt go Dhanushkodi). Stayed in the hotel near to Temple. Had Meenakshi Temple darshan in the morning. Reached Kodaikanal in the afternoon. Had lunch and sight seeing. Because of rain, we were late when reached Palani at 8 pm. Since the programme was of short period, reached back at Cochin early morning. Used own vehicle, but taken support of a driver. Trip was very enjoyable. I plan to go for similar trips in future also.

This was again a one time experience of self driving to this wonderful sacred city called Madurai.rnI was planning for more than 5 years and my dream came true. Worth while road trip and enjoyed the whole journey with clear road signs to arrive at important places. The people of Madurai were really helpful and they gave us directions when we had to pass through certain areas.Good trip to Madurai especially with the visit to this beautiful temple which isrnof great history.

We travelled to Kochi by Guruvayur express in 3rd class AC. Its nice decent journey compared to sleeper class. Business class experience train travels fast after reaching nagercoil junction. Catering not available in train so we pay for food and Tirunelveli junction its good.

It is one of the safest modes of transport in India to reach the beauty land Kochi. The sightseeing from the train is really admirable. So please travel in train to reach Kochi from Madurai. Kochi serves as the right place to start your Kerala trip due to its connectivity to major airports.
