Day 4:

We started the proceedings by visiting the Poornathrayesi and Chotanikkara Bagavathy Amman temples. The maintenance of the temples I have seen in Kerala is spot on. I was not able to take snap of the Chotanikkara temple from outside.
There is also a nice temple dediated to Lord Balaji near Poornathayesi temple.
Also do note that while entering temples in Kerala, men have to enter the premises bare chested.

Later in the noon we went to the Mattencherry Palace. We also spent some time in the Jew town as well.

Day 5:

We signed off the Kochi trip by visiting Thirumoozhiloolam Temple about 30 kms from the hotel where we stayed.

We spent about 45 min in the temple and left the place for Bangalore by 11 AM. Anticipating heavy rush as most of the folks would be returning home after vacation, took the Edappadi - Jalagandapuram - Nangavalli - Mecheri - Thoppur route.
I must say the above mentioned route till Mecheri (SH 220) is a treat to drive with less traffic and lots of twists and turns.
There was heavy rush at the 3 toll plazas, Thoppur, Krishnagiri and Attibele. Finally reached home by 11 PM
Overall we enjoyed the trip to the core.

Has the toll collection started?

I remember h14 and ravib also mention about the upcoming toll in their posts about NH532.

When I crossed the toll plaza, collection had not yet started.
