Guna caves is over crowded but the next stop pillar rocks made me stop and take a few clicks. The rock is even better when there is mist around as when it clears it gives very clear formation of the rocks. Nice place for a potrait photo along with scenery especially if you have an SLR camera.

Visit this place post noon, where you could have a good view of the rock towers. The visibility will actually go minimal due to heavy mist. Totally enjoyed the scenery.

The view of the cliff and the valley are quite awesome from here. But the place needs a lot of improvement. Especially with respect to cleanliness. You will find plastic covers (and cow dung when we went) everywhere.

This has been a point of interest for Kodai visitors for years together. The municipality could do much more to make it more convenient to visitors and spruce it up to make it attractive. The natural pillar rocks are kept pristine, but didn't excite me.
