My personal experience is not good and I would opt for sleeper seat in a train as I am not comfortable with bus. Journey was smooth without any problems. We did stop in the middle for little refreshment. And yes, one more thing, the TV volume was loud which was pretty disturbing.

I traveled to Rameshwaram by my Car twice. The roads are quite good from Bangalore till Madurai, after which single lane drive comes. The only issue I faced is that there are not many Car tyre repair shops in between. I got one of my Car tyre flat and had to go around 10 Kms to find a shop. Otherwise the journey was quite good and there are ample road side shops/dhabas to eat and get yourselves recharged. More »

Roads are very good, and if you lucky and have good bus and driver the total trip is smooth.\r\nBus service is okay type, reaching at 7.30 in Ramshwaram does help to start off the day soon. The autos from there to city / temple are cheap and easily available. Unfortunately this service BUS terminal in Bangalore is of very small size and they don\\\'t care about customer care during this extra waiting at there terminal. More »

There is no direct flight to Madurai from Bangalore. One has to reach via Chennai, which is waist of time when compared to direct flights. In between 3-4 hours gap is too high and airport cafes charge Euro equivalent prices for items. It affects common man. More »

I had been to Rameshwaram with my wife for darshan at one of the famous temples of Shiva, and also to see the history according to Ramayan. There are several hotels (more than 15), on this lane, situated near the main temple and beach, including the one where we stayed. Unfortunately, due to...more »

I had not booked any package because of cost. SRS is the only travel which offers direct travel to Rameshwaram. Changing buses or trains was tedious and costly too. It was very comfortable travel and timing was such that a weekend gateaway can be planned. Fare is also in limits.

Also they stopped at Pamban Bridge to have us let it see. I was very happy and I will recommend this to everyone who is planning to go to Rameshwaram from Bangalore. More »
