Some years, Bhagawan Baba used to spend a few days during the summer
months of April and May in this lovely picturesque hill station
of Kodaikanal. His beautiful residence here
is called ‘Sai Shruti’.
Kodaikanal, popularly known as Kodai, is situated among the
Pali Hills in the South-Indian state of Tamil Nadu at 2133
metres above sea level. With its enchanting landscape, it
is a trekker's delight and a nature lover's paradise. It is
one of the most popular tourist hill stations of South India.
It provides a soothing escape from the heat and haze of the
plains. The temperature ranges between 11° Celsius to
20° Celsius during the summer season. As the weather during
early mornings and late evenings can be quite cold, it is
advisable to equip oneself with warm clothing.
Kodaikanal is well-connected by road to Chennai (520 km),
Ooty (264 km), Trichy (197 km), Coimbatore (175 km), Kumuli
(160 km), and Madurai (120 km).
Regular bus services are available from Madurai,
Palani, Kodaikanal Road, Theni, Dindigul, Tiruchirapalli (Trichy),
Kumuli (Thekkady) and Coimbatore. Additional buses ply during
the peak summer season. Taxis and vans are available for local
transportation. There are no auto-rickshaws in Kodaikanal.
The nearest airport is at Madurai (120 km from Kodaikanal).
The nearest railway stations are the Kodai Road Railway Station
(80 km) and the Palani Railway Station (64 km).
Please note that there is no accommodation facility available
inside the ashram premises.
