Yes Its there in h14's update where he mentions about a toll booth being built. Not sure if there is another on the Veppur-Vriddachalam section as well.

The toll booth is between Thalaivasal and Veppur. Its not functional yet but the construction is complete. And the markers for NH532 is very prominent along this road. And I think its a fantastic option for Chidamabram. In fact at the 4-lane exit, they actually mention Chidambaram. The road is a black top as of today end to end with all the markers in place.


What it saves you from:

- Getting into Ulundurpet town
- Bumpy Uludurpet-Mangalampetai-Vridhachalam section
- Wading through Vridhachalam town

The highway directly takes you to the bypass which ever way you want to head to; Chidambaram or Jayamkondan.

Hello Sir.

Did you do the trip to Thirunallar, as planned?

The reason I ask is, I am planning to drive to Thirunallar this Friday morning (Dec 23rd), go to Saneeswara Temple on Saturday and return to Bangalore on Saturday. So I want to know

1. What is the best route?
2. Road Conditions?
3. Was it to hectic to do up and down in 2 days.

Appreciate your feedback.

Bangalore-Salem-Thalaivasal-Veppur-Vridhachalam bypass - Jayamkondan- T Palur - Kumbakonam Bypass - Kollumangudi - Karaikal.

Basically go till Salem; take the Uludurpet 4-lane; go till Thalaivasal, exit to take NH532; go all the way till Vridhachalam bypass; take the road to Jayamkondan and reach Kumbakonam via T Palur.

Be on the Kumbakonam bypass and trace through to the Karaikal road exit.

Super awesome all the way. (At least till Kollumangudi; the place where you cut Mayavaram-Thiruvarur SH).

If you start by 4 in the morning, you can make it to Kumbakonam by 9:30/10 and to Karaikal by 12. Finish you darshan by evening and return the next day. You can do a morning darshan also and start by 11 to be back in Bangalore by 7/8.
