Kodaikanal - Tourist place
If you want to escape from summer, you can go to Kodaikanal. This is a amazing tourist place to spend your holidays. The best season is April to June. You can reach Kodaikanal by bus. Nearest Airport is Madurai. Here many hotels offers good accommodation. The Hotel run by Tamil Nadu – TTDC is my best choice.
Kodaikanal – means “the gift of the forest” - was established in 1845 by American Missionaries. The nick name for Kodaikanal is Princess of Hill Stations.
Built in 1863, the star shaped spread over an area of 24 hectares - Kodai Lake is major attraction of Tourists. Here boating facilities are available for Tourists.
Bryant Park is another centre of attraction for Tourists. Bryant, the name of the British Officer who landscaped the Park. During the month of May, annual horticulture show is held here. The Park has many varieties of flowers and cut flowers are exported. The trees i.e. Eucalyptus and Pine are worth to see. You can see the KURINJI FLOWER (Bloom once in 12 years) here.
