It has just dawned. The slow train ran through the vast sunflower stretches of Koyilpatti in Tamil Nadu, India. Keeping aside my yawn, I wake up to the light sun-rays on my chin over at my side lower birth in the train. A vendor arrives with his crass cacophonous advertising, selling breakfast on a hand tray with portions steaming idlis, aromatic ghee pongals and meduvada (pulse battered with spices and fried into little rounds) on it, alongside a tumbler of chutney. He also carries a dispenser that keeps hot chai. I make a purchase for my tummy god in a jiffy, no thoughts there! Savouring the venpongal and steaming tea, I await as the train makes its way into Madurai Station in no hurry.

As I entered, I am stunned and a beautiful aura of spirituality that engulfs me. The stone structures built on huge pillars whisper a million stories through their deep eyes. With little lamps of brass and silver hung from the ceilings being lit, it was splendid to look at the majestic...more »

Last week Friday I travelled from Bangalore to Madurai. The bus was a nonstop bus but stopped at proper places for refreshment/rest room. The bus stopped in Salem and there were gents who were pissing on public and ladies have no option to go to restroom as there was no toilet facility. I asked the driver to stop at proper hygienic place and he said he will stop at Namakkal only which is one hour trip from Salem. Ladies suffered a lot during that journey don't book in Sharma travels hereafter.

Train was on schedule and reached Madurai on time. As we got upper berths, we had problems, but one fellow passenger swapped his lower birth that allowed my wife to sleep comfortably without the need to climb up. Since we reached Madurai at 7.40 am, there was no need to taste the food either in the train or at the station.

Drive by car is wonderful you get to see the rural side of the country. You get to eat the food at the dhabas We stopped to take some pictures. We took NH 7 route which is nice to travel; their was no bumps on the road, and you can enjoy a smooth drive. Carry water as much as you can because that really helps while travelling by road.

The connectivity to Madurai is via NH-43 which is one of the best road. I had travelled, it is well connected and the sign boards are very well displaced, the road is condition is too good. with 4 lane road. The road has multiple toll booths, may be around 7-8 till you reach Madurai. Crossing Hosur and Krishnagiri toll booth would be hectic with maximum waiting time because of the traffic load.
