RECOMMENDED DRIVING ROUTE FROM BANGALORE...since we get so many people driving in from Bangalore, we think its important to suggest what we think is a better route.
While the Thiruvanmalai Route is SHORTER, it has forever had a very bad surface. The advantage is that you can stop at Gingee and Thiruvanmali on the way if you want.
However, we recommend the Second route which is the Chennai-Bangalore Highway for the most part, which makes driving very easy. From Arcot you drive through District roads through Tamil countryside, which is also very picturesque. It take approximately the same time to get to your destination, with a much less bumpy ride
