Left Bangalore R T Nagar at 5:45 am via Brigade Road, Adugodi, Madivala, Electronic City bridge reached hosur after two toll points. Once you cross Hosur you can pick up your full speed and reach Krishnagiri toll. After Krishnagiri toll you should be careful not to climb the bridge going towards Dharmapuri instead take the service road to enter Chennai Road and instead of taking right turn under Krishnagiri Bridge travel to Bargur, then head to Tirupattur.

Once you are in Tiruvannamalai head to Tirukoilur ( the same road to Sathanur dam from Tiruvannamalai). From Tirukoilur take road to Panruti and then to Neyveli and via kurinjipadi if you reach Bhuvanagiri the roads are fairly good and from Bhuvanagiri you can reach Chidambaram very easily.

As of today I feel this is the best route to reach Chidambaram from Bangalore though we need to travel only state highways after Bargur.

We also went to Karaikal from Chidambaram via Sirkazhi and one has to be careful not to take Mayavaram road by mistake.

From Bangalore to Chidambaram it takes approx 8 to 9 hours depending on the speed you travel, stops for rest, traffic. We took 8 hours from Bangalore with two stops in between for approx 30 to 45 mins. Distance is close to 380 Km.
