We started at 7. 30 am in the morning. The route taken was Bangalore-Hosur-Vellore-Kanchipuram-mahabalipuram-pondicherry.

We stayed in Mahabalipuram for 2 days and then reached pondicherry. The review about mahabalipuram is also given. But, here I will concentrate on pondicherry.

The route for throughout the journey is GREAT. About 15% of the journey is little rough as it goes through the village. ECR highway is also good, but was under repair in many places. Rest of the way was 6 lane road. Average speed of car 110Km/hr.

Total journey time with breaks about 5 hrs. Distance 370 Km approx.

1st thing that comes into your mind when you enter this hotel is WOW. Starting from the sprawling lawn to the built of the hotel.

The staff is courteous. Rooms are spacious and well maintained. The room had all the amenities one could think of. (LCD, AC, tea coffee maker, lamps,...more »

The travel was through various areas of our nation. Lush green fields, roadside dhabas style food centre, hospitable people etc etc. The driver was acting as a guide too. We had delicious fresh corns, nice cups of hot coffee but two things for improvement - roads and toilets on the way.

While going from Blr to Pondy, I took Krishnagiri - arcot- cheyyar - tindivanam - pondi. This is 60-80 km longer route but much very nice Road. While coming back, I took Pondi - Tindivanam - Thiruvannamalai - Krishnagiri - Bangalore.
Entire road till Krishnagiri was single lane without divider- Tiruvannamalai to Krishnagiri route had many many bad patches of Road. Worst drive. Longer route is better.

You can travel from Bangalore to Pondy by road which has a good road connectivity. There is no room for confusion in road travel. If you have a good vehicle , you will not feel the distance travelled. You can also visit Kalakam, Mahabalipuram and Kanchipuram which are nearby to Pondy.

The journey by Innova car was very comfortable. The roads are excellent (NH). The National highway via Hosur, Krishnagiri, Tiruvannamalai, Tindivanam is most comfortable, except a few kilometers which is under repair. Tiruvannamalai temple, Vakra Kali temple near Tindivanam, Panchamukhi Anjaneya temple near Pondicherry are the places worth visiting enroute. Not much to say about the food available enroute. One or two good hotels can be visited in Tiruvannamalai.
