      Bangalore to Kumbakonam Route info needed.

      Hi Guys,

      I will soon be taking on a road trip from Bangalore to Kumbakonam with family and friends.

      After searching in Google I came across two possible routes

      Route 1

      Bangalore - Hosur - Krishnagiri - Dharmapuri - Salem - Namakkal - Karur - Trichy - Thanjavur - Kumbakonam

      Route 2

      Bangalore - Hosur - Krishnagiri - Dharmapuri - Salem - Perambalur - Ariyalur - Thanjavur - Kumbakonam

      Can someone who has already taken this trip recently advise on which road is better.
      Also can someone suggest a good hotel to stay there. as of now i am all towards Raya's hotel and this I found on google
      but it will really help if someone can advise a better hotel or reveiws of places where they have stayed.

      This trip is scheduled for next friday 18th June.

      Appreciate all the help i can get.

      Route 1 is longer but has better roads for most of the way. No idea about hotels, will check with a few friends.

      Route 1 is not advised because NH67 from Karur to Trichy is in a bad shape thanks to widening work. Alternative is to turn off NH7 at Namakkal itself and take SH via Musiri to Trichy.

      For Route 2, Salem-Perambalur road is not so good.

      I suggest Route 3, which is as follows:
      Bangalore-Hosur-Krishnagiri-Uttangarai-Tiruvannamalai-Tirukoyilur-Panruti-KUmbakonam.
      The map for the route is given below.
      You turn off NH66 at Tiruvannamalai. The road till the NH45 intersection (between Villupuram & Veppur) is in good condition (last month's update).




      Hotel Raya's is a good hotel, but food is supposed to be bad. Hotel Green Park is newer and supposed to be better, but I have no personal experience of either of the hotels.

      I had taken Route 3 in April to visit Kumbakonam after visiting Chidambaram, roads are good but check village traffic.

      There's a place called Gangai Konda Chozhapuram enroute to Kumbakonam, its a replica of Tanjavur temple.. I didn't stay in Kumbakonam.

      I am also slated to visit Kumbakonam soon, so will be happy with reviews of places to stay there.

      Update on Tiruvannamalai-Tirukoyilur-NH45 road (someone went on it 3 days ago):
      Road is a little rough, narrow, but not bad.
