Along with these temples, Dharmasthala and Subrahmanya are also visited by lot of people. There should be a link from Subrahmanya Road stn (SBHR) to Thiruchendur -- connects Kukke Subrahmanya, Palani, Thiruparankundram and Pazhamudhircholai (both in Madurai) and Thiruchendur.

(if start from SBHR SBHR, then will bypass MAQ)
Train may start from MAQ, and 99.99% it will not start from SBHR. For Guruvayur they will give stop for Kuttipuram unless there is a direct train to GUV. (if start from SBHR, then will bypass MAQ)
