Or is it better to stick on to the Tiruchirapalli - Dindigul Bypass - Oddanchatram - Dharapuram - Pollachi - Palakkad route itself?

Thanks
Since the church is very close the Karur highway, it is better to take the Karur road. To take the Dindukkal road, you have to go through the town to reach the NH 45.

There is a kannapa (same group) at thillai nagar also, about a km from the church.

Trip Details: Palakkad - Velankanni

As suggested in this forum, took the following route:
Palakkad - Pollachi - Dharapuram - Oddanchatram - Dindigul Bypass - Tiruchirapalli - Thanjavur - Mannargudi - Thiruthuraipoondi - Velankanni

Excluding breaks, the total running time with an early morning departure from Palakkad is 6.30 minutes. The Thanjanvur Velankanni stretch via Mannargudi - Thiruthuraipoondi can be covered in 1.45 mnts. Apart from a few bad stretches, it is driveable.

The breakfast halt at Ponram Food Square, Dindigul is good, fast and clean. Moreover its bang on the Highway.

Likewise, in the return stretch, for lunch, Hotel Kannappa at Grand Gardenia, Tiruchirapalli is good and is also on the Highway.

Thanks to Ampere and every one else for the suggestions!

Did you take the Trichy-Karur-Arvakurichi-Dharapuram option on the way back? If yes, how is the Arvakurichi-Dharapuram stretch? I expect it to be very good. But will be good to hear your update on that.

We took the Trichy - Dindigul route for return trip also. Since it was already late in the evening, we felt that it would be easier driving on the Four lane Highway.
