Great Tamil Nadu roads with huge tolls collected, 6 lane roads. Food available on the way with many restaurants available on the way. Good food is also available. Be careful if its a peak season like weekend holidays as it would be crowded. Few km in between is ghat section. Night travel would be difficult as many lorries are driving around.

As usual train journeys are still painful in India. Trains coaches are not clean and though they say but actually it is not. I travelled in 2nd AC but the condition of coach and bedding given was very poor. It is always suggestive to carry your own food and water.

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.
