I had been to Karur by road in the month of September 2015. Karur is reachable through all the mediums of transport I. E. Road, rail and air. The nearest airport is Trichy. The must-visit attractions in and around Karur include the Kalyana Venkattaramasami Temple, Nerur and Mayanur. The Kalyana Venkataramanaswamy temple is located 4 kilometers from Karur town in a place called as Thanthondrimalai.
