    I have visited these places

    Meena,

    I have visited these places when I had been to Coimbatore a year back.

    Marudhamalai Temple - about 10 to 15kms from the railway station, dedicated to Lord Subramanya and it's a hilltop temple

    V O C Park - There is a mini-zoo and joy train in this park (you may want to try if your daughter would enjoy!)

    Black Thunder - Water theme park in the Ooty - Mettupalayam road
    It is an amusement part with several water games (again it's for your daughters interests)

    Hill Stations - We also visited hill stations like ooty, kotagiri and coonoor. You can go by train via mettupalayam and it is very scenic.

    For shopping, you can go to Shree Lakshmi Towers in Mettupalayam road. Very famous 4-storey shopping place. Beware, this city is a bit costly!

    suggestions

    Hi Meena!
    From Coimbatore we had driven down to Munnar - which is scenically very beautiful.
    Coimbatore is famous for sweets - Mysorepa at Krishna sweets and sarees.
    Have a good time,
    Sharada
