Hi,

I intend to stay in Tiruvannamalai from 16th of July till 29th of August 2015 (I hope I will succeed to pratice Tamil language there). I will arrive probably in Bangalore Airport around 7:30 pm. I will leave the next morning to Tiruvanamalai. I would like to know :

Am I right if I say buses to Tiruvanamalai leave mainly from KSRTC Satellite Bus Station (Byatarayanapura, Srinagar, Banashankari) ? If yes...

....1. Do you know an inexpensive hotel close to Satellite (or easily reachable by walk or bus ?).

....2. Is there a direct bus from airport to Satellite ? I read null's answer (Bangalore Airport to Mysore Satellite Bus Stand - 18th January 2012). By now I am looking to http://www.mybmtc.com/airportservices but I am not sure the bus (route Kias 10) will drop me near the hotel (...the hotel we found on the precedent question). I will be near 65, tired, with 21 kg backpack in the night...,

....3. Maybe the best option is to go by prepaid taxi. Do you think it will cost more or less 800 rps (according to the thread - Approx Taxi Cost,New Airport to Town -) ?

....4. Do I need to book my seat for Tiruvannamalai before (and how, for a foreigner) ? It seems there are a lot of buses going there (on http://www.ksrtc.in/).

Thanks for your answers.

...dreaming his travel a long time before...

I will spend some days in Bengalore with my wife in September 2015. So, maybe some other questions...

Hi,
Almost all the state buses like KSRTC,TNSTC ( tamil nadu state buses ) and some private buses will leave from DOUBLE ROAD (shanti nagar ) terminals.
Their are some good hotels near this terminals and if you can let us know your budget we could recommend some.
Their are direct buses from airport to double road terminals and a taxi would cost roughly 900/=
Their are a lot of buses to tiruvanamalai almost 24 hours a day and you need not book in advance, the travel time is roughly 5 hours
I hope i answerd your questions.
regards

Thank you N Kumar,

The Ksrtc site was not working by now but I show you a screen I printed yesterday (http://imageshack.com/a/img540/3994/RmMhn0.jpg). Now you can understand why I thought all the buses for Tiruvannamalai are leaving from Satellite. I was thinking - This question is useless... - and I discover by your answer it was a very good one. Thanks again.

I don't need a very good hotel. I hope I will find something correct for less than 2000 rps (I am used to 300/500 rps in some remote places). As I will come by bus (which one ?) I will be happy not to walk to much from the bus stand till the hotel.

Following your first advice I looked for hotels near the bus station in Shanti Nagar and I selected two at walkable distance and which do not look too much expensive, the hotel Telehaus and the hotel Deva Residency. At around 600 m from the bus station there is the Grand Pavillon which looks nice but more expensive (> 3000 rps).

Do you have some other advices ?

Thanks N Kumar

Hi N Kumar,

Somewhere else somebody give me this link http://www.narasimhadatta.info/ which is very useful (if up to date).

As I decided to follow your advice* I go on looking for hotel near Shantinagar and I added http://www.hoteltoms.com/contact.html and http://ammhotel.in/

* As you remain silent I am a little affraid : I hope you did not think I was badly joking giving what I found on Ksrtc website. Exactly the contrary : I was ready to go to Satellite which is not easily reachable and you give me this new and good idea of Shantinagar (I thought the Ksrtc website was not ok but it looks clear they show only some State buses there).
