The easy way to reach Tirupathi by car is via Chengalpet, Kanchipuram, Tirthani and Tirupathi. The road from Pondicherry to Chengalpet is a safe and beautiful 4 way lane. The road becomes narrow afterwards, but is not having much of a traffic. A famous MURUGAN temple is enroute at Tiruthani. From Renigunta the road is again wide and safe to drive.
