Saduragiri is a place of Siddhars. It consists of Five hills and two Shiva temples on top of them apart from many deities and places enroute.
This post is a small hint for you to undertake the devotional yatra to Saduragiri. Om Nama Shivaya! Om Saduguru Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadike
There is a train till Srivilliputhur from Chennai - Podigai Express. Get down in Srivilliputhur and refresh in a hotel. There are many good lodges around the city. We stayed in Hotel Sasitharan, not a bad one but without lifts and A/C

The railway stations is quite far from the city. You need to take an auto to enter the city. There are many share autos available too
Better book an auto that takes you the hotel and till the base of Saduragiri hills. They charge Rs 300/- for doing this both. We hired Muthu - a young chap who co-operated with us very well.

After you are done with refreshments have your breakfast at Kathiravan hotel, a famous one in Srivilliputur, They serve good vegetarian food. The have unique billing system (it will require another post - )
Thaniparai is where the Saduragiri journey starts. It is advisable to carry minimum luggage and walk bare foot. Better to stay on top and return the next day. There are some basic facilities on top which you need to adjust.
Relax for a while before climbing and take enough nourishments here. For first timers better equip yourself with rehydrating drinks. There are no shops enroute, Be prepared!
