Kodai celebration

The next one was Pillar Rock; there are three Natural rocks, which look like Pillars. But we cant se that fully, because of Mist. The views form Coakers Walk was very beautiful, the small villages in the down and the houses on the slopes are wonderful, first 5 minutes we cant see any thing, the place was fully covered my mist, which look like white screen. Which are all I missed in my last trip, and it was fulfilled now. In Evening went to the Famous Kurunji Andavar Temple, one of the height place in Kodaikanal, a silent temple with cool breeze. In Tamil literature Kurinji means hill region and Andavar means God. Hence Lord Muruga is referred as God of hill. Wherever we go, we will be reaching our room before 7.pm, the cold wind was very high. Form our room we can see the lights of vehicles, which are going in Pariyakum (a small town in the foot of kodaikanal hill), first we thought these are lights of vehicles which passes in the hills, next morning only we know that there is no hill before us only valley.
