Traveled by 1st class AC. There were some halts and delays of an hour, however it was made up in the night and we reached 15 minutes ahead. So we had to wait for auto/taxis to arrive. The railway station at Velankanni is about 2 kms form the shrine and 1 km from our booked hotel. So we reached hotel pretty quickly.

I travelled by train in the second class sleeper. The people travelled along with us were good and we had shared food. My travel was very pleasant and memorable. We are planning to go again by the same train in third AC. We will have a blast on the way am sure. More »

An usual train journey. Since it was AC compartment everything was fine. The co-passengers were good. The compartment was tidy and clean. The toilets were neat and the temperature inside the compartment was cosy. The blankets and bedsheets that was provided to the passengers was very neat. More »

Travel was awesome. Roads were good and there were plenty of boards which allowed us to identify if we were going the right way. Added advantage is to have a navigator which helps. Good options to have some nice seafood on the way. Overall a very nice trip.
