Hi Frankipants,

There are two routes from Chennai to Pondicherry

Route A:


Chennai to Pondicherrry via NH 45
You will cross Chengalpet
Madhuranthakam (Eri Kaatha Ramar Temple)
Melmaruvathur (Amman Temple)
Tindivanam
Just before Pondicherry, you have a famous temple Panchavadi
The Distance is around 156 Kms and the road is too good

Route B:

Chennai to Pondicherrry via ECR(East Coast Road)

You will cross the following
1. Crocodile Park
2. Tigers Cave
3. Mamallapuram (Need a Day atleast to see and enjoy the sculptures)
4. Pondicherry
The distance is around 132 Kms and the road is good.

There is a third route as well through what is called as Old Mahabalipuram Road.

With some detours you can explore temples like thirukazhukundram and thirupporur (not very sure of this one..will recheck anyway).

Dont have to Recheck Ribhu. You are right.

But normally we advise people to avoid this route as it is clogged by buses of IT Companies and the route anyway will reach Kovalam in ECR.
