A good place to visit

I had been to Dindigul by road in the last week of December 2015. Dindigul is reachable by all the three modes of transport - road, rail and air. The nearest airport to Dindigul is Madurai which is located just 30 kilometers away. The must-visit attractions in and around Dindigul include Dindigul fort and Dindigul Hills. Dindigul is located around 400 kilometers from Chennai. At once upon a time in history, Dindigul was ruled by Hyder Ali and then the British ruled over from 1790 to 1860. At present, the Dindigul fort is maintained by the ASI. The Dindigul Hills is an ideal place for sightseeing and picnic and this hill is very famous for the Kurinji flower which blooms once in every 12 years.

Dindigul Overview

Dindigul is a town in Tamil Nadu state in southern India. Dindigul means rock and refers to hills overlooking the city’s bare land and skyscraper. Dindigul shares its boundary with a number of adjoining states and districts. Karu and Erode districts surround Dindigul on the northern side and Tiruchirappalli district on the eastern side. On the southeast side, the town is bound by Madurai District and the western side is bordered by state of Tiruppur and Kerala District.

There are very less options to explore within Dindigul, apart from a fort, few temples and holy rivers. Dindigul Fort is a cultural heritage located on a hill at a height of 280 ft. In 1605, King Madurai Muthu Krishna Naicker started the construction of this fortress. The fort finally was completed in 1659 under the supervision of Mannar Thirumalai Naicker. Kodaikanal and Palani taluks are a few well-known vacationer places for tourists to visit around Dindigul. These taluks are much cooler in comparison to other areas of Tamil Nadu.

Among other must visits are N Panjampatti which is just 7 km from Dindigul and a 300 years old Roman Catholic Church. The Dindigul Rock fort built by King Krishna Naicker and Muthien Madurai Thirumalai, is another example of rich historical past which was completed in 1605. It witnessed a number of wars involving rulers like Tipu Sultan and the British.

Sirumalai Hill Resort is a hill and retreat from the urban life. This pleasant hill is located on the way to Dindigul Nathan. Begambur Grand Mosque is a well-known mosque in Begambur Pallivasal and is about 200 to 300 years old. Sri Kottai Mariamman Kovil is an old temple, considered to be before two centuries.

There are shuttle buses to Kasi Vishwanathan Visalakshi every 30 minutes and are easily accessible to the devotees. An added attraction is the union of three rivers Vaigai, Maruda and Manjalaru. It is important to note that the river flows north Vaigai near this village. This is an important pilgrimage point where devotees take holy bath during auspicious days.

Temple Kamakshiamman Devadanapatti is an eight miles on road that connects Batlagundu-Peryakulam. There are regular buses from Batlagundu to Periyakulam.

Anjaneyar Anapatti Temple is 5 miles from Nilakottai Taluk. Queen of Madurai, Rani Mangamma constructed the temple which took 300 years. The idol gets partially immersed when the water is full here and is located near the bridge Peranai.
