Those who visit Kodaikanal would definitely visit Bryant Park which is located at the heart of the town. However, not all the visitors are aware of yet another small but beautiful park called Chettiar Park. It is located near Kurinji Andavar temple in Kodaikanal, which is slightly away from the center of the town.

The beautifully designed bushes adorn the park. There are hundreds of varieties of flowers found in this park. During the season time (once in twelve years) Kurinji flowers are also seen here.

The Chettiar Park is a silent but pleasing tourist destination in Kodaikanal. Don't miss this!

Happy travelling.
