But there are no good restaurants beyond this till Dindigul, unless you enter into Karur or Namakkal towns.

Between Karur and Dindigul, Valluvar is a good option.

It comes on the right side when driving south, I don't think they are listed on Google map. But location is around here.

I will be doing this route coming weekend.

Day 1: Bangalore -> Madurai (via Salem-Namakkal-Karur-Dindigul)
Day 2: Madurai -> Rameshwaram (Via Paramkudi - Ramanathapuram - Rameshwaram)
Day 3: Rameshwaram -> Dhanushkodi -> Kanyakumari (Via Ramanathpur - Kilakarai - Sayagudi - Thoothukudi* - Tirunelveli - Kanyakumari)
Day 4: Stay in Kanyakumari
Day 5: Kanyakumari -> Madurai (Via Tirunelveli - Kovilpatti)
Day 6: Madurai - Bangalore (Same as on Day 1)

Are these the best routes to take (Google Map Link)?

I am aiming to start from Whitefield at 4:30AM on Saturday. Is it early enough?

Day 3 has me in a doubt. Would it be too hectic? Can Dhanushkodi be done along with Temple visit in the morning? My thinking being that it will then leave me with a leisured drive to Kanyakumari the next day?

All suggestions welcome.

PS: Stay in all the stop overs have been already booked, however, I do not have those details yet (task assigned to the ladies of the house).

Your Day 1 is just Bangalore-Madurai, so this should be fine. About 6 hours is a comfortable journey time for Bangalore-Madurai. Temple closes around noon, so you can head straight to the temple for a visit.

If you reach Rameswaram on Day 2 afternoon, you can visit the local temples/tourist spots with a 4pm start from your hotel and visit the Ramanathan temple to complete Day 2.

On Day 3, do an early morning drive to Dhanushkodi and then drive to Kanyakumari (from Dhanushkodi you will have to drive to Kanyakumari via Rameswaram).

Excellent. Thank you. I will update the plan with this.
