How to go to Saduragiri (from Chennai) - Part 1

How to Go To Saduragiri / Sathuragiri (Land of Siddhars) by Train / Bus

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
Hotel Sasitharan, Srivilliputhur

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.

The journey to the city from Railway station comes with a scenic experience of Sri Andal Temple's Rajagopuram.

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 - )

Once you are done with your breakfast stock yourself with Water bottles, Glucose, Electral, some medicines etc and start your journey to Thaniparai - the base camp for Saduragiri hills.

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!

Om Namah Shivaya!
