Kodaikanal Places

Kodaikanal or Kodai is one of the Tamil Nadu's most popular hill stations located 120 km north west of Madurai famous for Lush green valleys, terraced plantations and a pleasant climate. Lake view, Pillar rock, Bryant park, Coaker's Walk, Silver cascade, Kurinji Andavar temple and Telescope house are the sight seeing places to visit in Kodaikanal.

This picturesque town is today spread out around the man-made, star-shaped Kodai Lake, created by the dam built by Sir Vere Henry Levinge in 1863. The 3-km (2-mile) long trail around the lake makes for a pleasant walk.


 On the shore is a Boat House, built in 1910. East of the lake is Bryant Park, famous for its plant collection and its annual flower show, held in May. Beyond the city centre are a number of scenic areas, such as Pillar Rocks, Silver Cascade and Green Valley View (origi nally known as Suicide Point). which offer enchanting picnic spots and views of the deep valley. Kodai also has many opportunities for cycling, rid ing and long, rambling walks. A trail following the hillside, called Coaker's Walk, provides a panoramic view of the hill station. The walk ends at the Church of St Peter, built in 

1884, which has fine stained glass windows. Nearby is a small Telescope House.

Some 3 km (2 miles) north east of the lake is the Kurunji Andavar Temple, dedicated to Murugan. It is named after the amazing kurunji flowers, associated with the god. The Chettiar Park nearby, laid out along the hillside, is where the kurunji blooms every 12 years.
