This would be very difficult in public transport. There may not be direct buses from Rameswaram to Kodaikanal. Hence, you would have to reach Madurai from where you need to change a bus to Kodaikanal. This journey by bus would take more than 6 hours.Assuming you are leaving by 0800 hrs also, you will reach Kodai only by 1500 hrs. There would not be much transportation options from Kodai to Palani after dark. Hence you should leave there by 1700 hrs atleast. So, what would be the purpose of this trip. Instead, you may comfortably find trains to reach Coimbatore directly.

But I don't see a big difference. I might take close to 2 hours from Madurai to Kodaikanal. By reaching Kodai in the noon, what are you proposing to do in some 5 hours. Is it worth the effort? The decision is upto you.

In Ooty you may fix up a seat in coach shared site seeing trip, where they would cover all important spots. You may consider doing Palani from Madurai and then reaching Coimbatore.
