i wanted informtion regarding karungalpalayam cattle market
distance from erode ?
how to reach from erode junction railway station?
what time market opens ?
K.G.Palayam is how commonly its called here locally.
Village is roughly around 6 to 7 kms from Erode junction. Ask for bus stand and from there its another 2kms to the market.
I have once visited long back before it was re-opened, they start as early as 5AM and close late noon. But not sure about the timing now. I advise you plan around 7AM as its scorching hot, out in these parts.
Hope this helps!
