 Dear Sir,

 I come from Patna,Bihar.I wish to visit the Ashram in the month of November.I shall board Patna-Bangalore
 Saghmitra Express which runs via Chennai. On which railway station should I leave the train to reach
 Tiruvannamalai comfortably. Should I board a taxi or a bus ? Kindly inform.

 Thank you.

Dear Anil,

If you come to Chennai, you have to again catch a train to Tindivanam and alight and then catch another train to Tiruvannamalai.  From T'malai Railway Station, you have to take
an autorickshaw and come to the Asramam.

It is better to catch a bus which takes you directly to Tiruvannamalai from Chennai.  But from Chennai Central Railway Station, you have to come to Koyambedu Bus Stand, which is about 12 kms. You can cover by auto.  Speak English.  Not many understand Hindi in Tamizh Nadu.

If you can afford, you can come directly by taxi up to the Asramam, for which charges would be Rs 2000+ one way.

Arunachala Siva.

 Dear Sir,
 Thank you so much for showing direction Sir, but this Saghmitra Express I mentioned in my post goes up to Bangalore
 and in route to Bangalore there fall two railways stations which are much closer to Tiruvannamalai.Sir, on privious
 occassions, I visited the Ashram from Bangalore.The name of one station perhaps is Katpadi. About the other
 close station, I do not know. Hence, Sir, my problem is which station should I alight and what mode of
 transportation is available to reach Tiruvannamalai  from there?

 Thank you.

                      Anil

Dear Anil,

Yes. Katpadi is definitely closer to Tiruvannamalai than Chennai
or Bangalore. You can alight at Katpadi and catch a bus and come
to Tiruvannamalai.  It may take about 3+ hours. Taxis may also
be plying from Katpadi to Tiruvannamalai.
