Bus journey was good. Since the trains are always full, we had no other choice. Bus was comfortable and seats were well-maintained. The staff were courteous. We had no problem, plenty of buses available from Bangalore. We were provided with water and clean blankets. Air conditioning was excellent.

We made the mistake of booking a sleeper class for our journey to Kumbakonam. The compartment was dirty with no lights, dirty toilets and no fan. Added to this passengers with non reserved tickets occupied the train causing nuisance to others. TT was nowhere to be seen and I heard one passenger proudly remarking that no one can ease them out even though she did not have a valid journey ticket. Genuine passengers are put to lot of hardship. Fortunately while returning we travelled by AC which was more comfortable and toilets were clean. The staff on duty was helpful.

It was a religious tour and we travelled form Bangalore to Kumbhakonam and the near by places. We were persons including the driver and we travelled in the morning. We started our journey and reached a place by name Tiruperumbadur, by night 8 pm. We now had the knowledge about the places in and around Kumbhakonam, with the help of google maps and we identified the route and travelled different places. It was very risky so it is better to engage driver at Kumbhakonam who knows the places and temples that has to be vistied.

Uttukadu,(Kalinga Narthana Krishna), Thirucherry Shiva Temple, Perumal Temple, Thirupampuram Raghu, Kethu-Kalasarpadosa Nivarana temple, Tirupambamaram - Maha siva Temple, Koothanoor (Saraswathi temple, Tirunageswaram Uppliappan Temple, Pirthyankaru Temple, Nachiniyar Koi, Thirunallur Shiva Temple (colour changing Lingam), Papanasanam 108 Sivalingams, Tanjavoor Bruhadeswara Alayam, Adi kumbheswara, Sriranganayaka Srirangangam.

It was a great experience, visiting all the temples that were constructed by Chola, Pandya Nayak King.

Its fantastic and a good experience in this route. Reaching up to Salem was great but from there onwards we should be very active in driving since there was lot of curves, deep curves etc. I am planning to visit this place again probably by the end of this year.

The SRS bus service to Kumbakonam was good. The bus reached the destination on time and without any hassle. The journey was comfortable for both the ways. The bus stopped at few places for tea and snacks, and it was pretty good indeed. I had a good time.
