So as per second seems the best option. But the first one is also not bad. However I expect higher traffic on the first option especially you get off the four lane. Might be a good idea to check Dindigul-Dharapuram section with others as well. I faintly remember some one saying that this section was deteriorating.

Hi ppl,

I was looking for feedback on options between Palladam and Dindigul/Madurai. Here I got exactly that and option #2 through Dharapuram works better.

Doubt I have is - from Dharapuram I do have to take road towards Oddanchatram and then NH209, or should I be avoiding Oddanchatram, if so what are alternates?
I haven't seen good feedback on Dharapuram - Oddanchatram section.

Hi Deepv,

Roads just as you approach Dindigul are in real bad shape (10 kms before dindigul) Rest of the entire drive is very good.

Considering this is the most suitable overall route, I will stick to it unless by 'real bad' you think it could be damaging for the vehicle.

No damage to vehicle, My Verna did not scrap anywhere, so hope that will act as a benchmark

Ooops .. your post was a little late

Considering your feedback, I took NH37 right turn after Oddanchatram on 2nd.
Thought it should not be worse than 'very bad', but that turned out to be a bad decision, particularly because movement was slowed at the town that passed in between and most of the later part on that stretch wasn't marked.
Road per se wasn't too bad with odd potholes and bad stretches, but it was got late in the evening delaying me getting on to NH7 (thus having to encounter totally unmarked road in dark).

In a nutshell, its a no go in dark, should be a decent option in daylight as on NH7 as well some sections are having diversions after Dindigul due to the repair work going on.
