Default Chennai to Thirunallar(Karikudi)

Planning to leave early moring, darisanam at temple and come back on the same day. Would like to know which road is good and shorter.

- Chennai - ECR road - Pondy - Thirunallar

OR

- Chennai - GST road - Vikkaravandi(just before Vilupuram) - Neyveli - Thirunallar.

Hi,
Thirunallaru is in KARAIKAL.
ECr route- cuddalore-chidambaram-SIRKAZHI-KARAIKAL is the shortest route.

tnx

Yes, the route is Chennai - Mahabs - Pondy - Cuddalore - Chidambaram - Sirkazhi - Thirukkadayur - Karaikal - Thirunallar.

After sirkali, you need to take left towards nagappattinam. Dont worry, sign boards are there.

Also, after around 8 or 10 KMs, there is one deviation in Sirkazhi - Karaikal road which goes to Thiruvengadu(Beatiful temple). Try that as well.

Thanks for the information guys.

Left on 4am on 6th morning from Chennai and reached Thirunallar at 9:45am.
Till Chidambaram road is fine and beyond that road is narrow and not so good also. Since it on working day temple is not crowded; we had a very good darisanam and left around 10:45am; Had a good tiffen ( bfast) at Vasan Cafe in Karikal.( Dosa Rs.15/- and pongal Rs.15/-) good. Hotel looks very small and quality of food and service were good.
Started around 11:30am back to chennai. I was tired, traffic, more breaks plus election time it took more hours back to chennai. reached chennai at
6pm.
On the way back, I have put petrol in Pondy. Petrol price is here 38.60 which almost Rs6/- less compare to chennai.

Over all trip was good; good drive in Cedia; Total KM driven 580KM.
