Yercaud Hills, TN

Recently we had a chance to conduct the ear boring ceremony of Anish in our family Deities in Anumanpalli, Erode. Normally this ceremony is conducted along with the tonsuring ceremony during the 11 month of the baby. Unfortunately, we missed this ceremony during that time and it was a long pending event on our end to complete it. There was a yearly celebration in the temple where people from different corners visit the temple for this procession. 

We had a chance to go to Yercaud hills, located in the Shevaroys range of hills in the Eastern Ghats. It was nostalgic to remember the trip in 2001 when our school friends joined together and had a great time visiting Yercaud from Chennai and it has been nearly 15 years, time really flies away. Ladies seat, Gents seat, Pakoda point, Kiliyur falls are the important spots one shouldn’t miss out in Yercaud. We had a boating in Yercaud Lake and it was a pleasant experience. Driving from Salem to Yercaud with numerous hair pin bends is a good driving experience. We stayed in Grand Estancia, Salem and I would truly recommend this place to stay in Salem with great amenities. 

There was alumni function from 1991 pass outs of Government College of Engineering, Salem in Grand Estancia and could see everywhere the group pictures with family, friends, children. Must be really truly rewarding experience when one meets their fellow friends from Engineering and having a get together after 25 years. I need to return from Erode to Chennai to catch the flight to Korea at 1 AM in Chennai. We started at 2 PM from Anumanpalli, Erode and we reached our home at 8 PM in Chennai. Had to hurry blurrily pack all the things and left the house by 10 PM and checked in the last minute. The highways from the Southern Districts to Chennai have improved a lot in the last 10 years. All in all, a great experience in Yercaud, nice ear boring ceremony of Anish clubbed with yearly temple procession.
