You are welcome ! If you get spare time on your hand there are several temples on this route starting with the one at Thiruvaiyaru, then Thingalur, at Ganapathi Agraharam enroute Thiruvaiyaru to Swamimalai (my native village from father's side). As the name goes, its famous for its Ganesha temple, you can see the gopuram and arch from the road, do check it out.

The temple closes by 12.00 noon and reopens at 4.30ish in the afternoon.

Thanks once again, indivic. Yes, I could see Ganapathi Agraharam on SH 22 in MMI. We will visit the Ganesha temple along with Thiruvaiyaru, Thingalur [one of the Navagraha temples] and Thirunageswaram. We will also visit Thanjavur Periya Koil.

Planning a drive to Thanjavur. Planning to take Trichy route. Any alternates? Understand that Perambalur - Ariyalur - Thanjavur is not good even though it is shorter

Yes. You are right. I did this route and the condition is horrible. Better stick with NH45 to reach Trichy and then proceed to Thanjavur.

Had a wonderful trip. Left Chennai at 6.30 am, had 45 min break at Aryas Garden at Tindivanam and reached Thanjavur at 12.30 pm.

On the return trip left at 12.15 pm and reached Chennai at 5.30 pm after a 15 min break on the way.

Fully 4 laned all the way.

Guys

I know this question is repeated but I'm looking for the route for Chennai -Tiruchi - Thanjavur. Chennai to Tiruchi is not a problem since I've driven many times Chennai-Madurai, so I'm looking for details like where I should leave NH45 to drive towards Thanjavur, is there a by-pass etc.

Thanks.

While going from Madras towards Trichy, IMMEDIATELY AFTER crossing the two Cauvery bridges, you'll reach a major junction - turn left at that point to go to Thanjavur.

I think there is a bridge at that junction now, so you'll have to take the side road, without going over the bridge.

I hope you know the Paal Pannai (Milk Farm) Junction. That's where you have to take left. If you havent been recently after they built the flyover, you will find it difficult as the place is completely changed.

Just watch for the Thanjavur sign, but don't take the left immediately, I think the board it kept too early, you need to go little and take the left service road.

You will be amazed how good the road between Trichy and Thanjavur, it is similar to NH45 with 4 lanes on each side. You can reach Thanjavur pretty quickly, you have to pay toll though

Yes, indeed it is in great condition. I did Trichy-Tanjore in 35 minutes flat. Only slow down area is till thiruverumbur till you cross the bustand. After that, road is all yours

The other point to note is if one tries to take our new found route (Vridhachalam-Jayankondam-Anaikarai-Kumbakonam-Tanjore), it does not help much either.
A reduction in 40km but you pay with heavy traffic and twisted roads.

I think the 4-Lane is the best option.
