Hi, I recently did Tanjore Poondi Matha Church. Kallanai to Poondi is around 20 kms. The place where church is located is called Thirukattupalli. Will get you the details tomorrow.

On Nh 45 after the coleroon bridge in srirangam and just before you hit the cauvery bridge take the left ,it is a winding road running along cauvery to kallanai- 17+ kms.
Cross over the kallanai bridge and take the road on the left side of bank only(right side is called thokur and this will reach poondi church after reaching thirukattupalli).
It is another 20kms on the banks and you have directions marked for the church which comes on your left.
It is a straightforward route.
PM me for any further assistance.
Pray for all of us. Incidentally i may go there on my way tomkumbakonam from trichy.

cheers

Best route is:

NH45 till you cross the river at Trichy and then followed by SH22 to Kallanai and Poondi.
Now Srivilluputur is straight forward route back via Trichy/Madurai on 45 followed by the route to Thenkashi.
If you dont plan to get into Madurai, then take the bypass via airport and there on to Thirumangalam and Thenkashi highway.

Hi,

I completed the trip and the information provided was very useful, I took the SH22 as suggested to Kallanai and Poondi, one thing I would like to highlight is crossing over the Kallanai from one side to other is a challenge with an oncoming vehicle as the bridge is very narrow, so need to wait for our to turn to cross over if a vehicle is already on the bridge.
