Need information on Madurai Visit/Kodaikanal trip

Hi All,

I and my wife are going to Kodaikanal in the mid-August for 2 days stay. Our train arrives Madurai on Monday early mrng @ 3:30 AM. We would like to fresh up, visit the Madurai Temple and then reach Kodaikanal by 11 AM on the same day (Monday).

In this regard, I "need information about the good budget hotels/dormitories near the railway station for just 2 or 3 hours" to freshen up before visiting the temple in the early morning. How are the amenities in the Madurai Junction railway station? Are there any facilities to fresh up in the railway station itself?

Also, how is the frequency of the local RTC buses in the morning hours to Kodaikanal from Arapalyam Bus stand?

Please provide me with this information. Thanks in advance.


Ramesh Ainam.

Madurai Railway Junction should definitely have some decent wash and change options. There are rest room facilities which you can avail of and I feel that should be okay for that short time. In case you want more information, I need to check and revert back to you, as I DO NOT HAVE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.

There are frequent buses to Kodaikanal, maybe one in half an hour.
