    From Bangalore to Madurai, you will get all 4 lane barring the under construction of 6 lane between Bangalore and Krishnagiri. From Madurai to Rameshwaram it is 2 way lane but the road will be good. No need to worry about rain at this time in TN.

    Expect hot weather at Rameshwaram.

    As its holiday weekend expect much traffic and crowd in the places
  5. I visited Rameshwaram during pongal,at that time entire strech from madurai to Rameshwaram was deserted.
    There was ussual crowd at temple but return trip we visited madurai temple.it was totally crowded but first time i saw how a festival is celebrated in TN.
    I still remember the smell of Thulasi(Basil)is fresh in my mind.

    You can drive your Punto to all the places. Even for Dhanushkudi, you can drive your Punto upto certain point and from there you can hire a 4x4 to go further. No worries.
  8. I had hired a jeep to go to dhnuskodi all other places were covered by punto.

    Hi Guys it wasn't a pleasant trip as my dad developed health problems on the way with high fever 105 had to admit him at Karur Apollo on the way to Rameshwaram he recovered well to the treatment at the hospital, I dropped the idea of traveling further and drove back to Bangalore on Saturday. He is fine now, I am grateful to all those guys who helped me reach the hospital and the staff and doctors there who helped my dad recover.
