      Bangalore to Chennai route and pitstop info

      Hi,

      We are planning to go to chennai the coming weekend. we intend to take the marthalli-vartur-sarjapur-hosur route.
      We also intend to visit Golden temple, vellore.
      could you please suggest some place for breakfast break after krishnagiri?
      Also what deviation do I need to take for the golden temple? Google maps shows a deviation from the highway some 10 kms before vellore. Is there any landmark for that deviation?


      Appreciate your help.

      Regards,
      Mohit

      You could either stop at Motel Roshin (on the left) which is between Vaniyambadi and Ambur or alternatively stop at Motel Deepam (on the right) which is just after the Pallikonda Toll booth. The deviation to Golden Temple is well marked on the NH after the Pallikonda Toll booth nothing to worry about.

      Re: Bangalore to Chennai route and pitstop info

      To provide you some coordinates:

      - Motel Roshin is 64 kms from the point where you turn off NH7 (into NH46) after Krishnagiri, and 8 kms after the Vaniyambadi Toll Gate.

      - Pallikonda Toll Gate is 30 kms after crossing Ambur and approximately 26 kms before Vellore

      - The turn off to Golden Temple is 13 kms after crossing the Pallikonda Toll Gate

      Re: Bangalore to Chennai route and pitstop info

      Other than the overcrowded picnic spot, Adayar Ananda Bhavan, at Chinnar, you have:

      1. Hotel Landmark (previously called Motel Rosin) - 15 km after the Vaniyambadi toll plaza on your left
      (The Yelagiri Landmark folks have taken over Motel Rosin)
      Decent food and OK toilets
      2. Motel Deepam, almost immediately after the Pallikonda toll plaza on your right.
      OK food and clean toilets

      You have some more options once you cross Vellore.

      (
      hrag is correct, I had made a mistake in mentioning that it is 8 kms after the Vaniyambadi toll gate, I rechecked my log, it is 15 kms as hrag said. Sorry for the mistake.

      Lots of waterlogging near Vellore on NH46 - it was pouring cats and dogs last evening. NH4 at the Sriperumbudur toll plaza and the NH46 stretch near Vellore are death traps when it rains heavily.
