 Palani and Kodaikanal are the two very common and thrilling places you plan to visit, during every summer season, especially from South India.Spiritually entertaining Palani and visually enthralling kodaikanal; each will cleanse and refresh your mind from all kinds of stress, providing eternal happiness.For that, you have to enjoy every moment of this journey and capture some unique shots of life.In this post, i will show you some fascinating pics from our (me and my friend Atul) Palani – Kodaikanal Trip.There is no need for an explanation about these two destinations as i think, because they are pretty common places for us, south indians.

So, let’s check out some of my shots and the stories behind them…
