Train travel to chennai

by kkrishnan48

I am coming from Singapore to Bangalore on 27 Oct for the first time. Intending to depart for chennai on Friday 29 oct. Have great difficulty in booking train tickets by internet. Can it be purchased with travel agents on 28 oct. Please advice.

It can be purchased from travel agents,but why do you want to leave it for then.Its most convenient to book online through the railways website www.irctc.co.in.What kind of problems are you facing booking online?

Many people prefer cleartrip.com to the irctc website, claiming
it is easier to book tickets online.
Also, if you can't get a confirmed seat you might consider the
tatkal option, which is available from memory 3 days before travel
date. With tatkal you have to pau slighly more for your ticket...

you can book on line, even though i might say the website is not user friendly, you have to know the abbreviations of stations, train names etc. but once you get the hang of it, you can book.
travel agents can book it for you, if you have friends in BLR, ask them to buy it for you as it is fairly easy.
The problem is not whether it is easy to book or not, it is always about availability. blr maa is a very popular train route and there are many trains and they tend to be sold out quite quickly. Air Conditioned Chair compartments are comfortable, for the quick journey of about six hours.

28th might be too late to book for 29th. I recommend that you get in touch with a travel agent to book it for you on 27th as Tatkal booking for 29th opens on 27th.

Alternately, you can travel by bus. kpntravels.in is pretty good. Else, you can try redbus.in.

Travel Tips for Bangalore

Melukote

by abi_maha

Early in twelfth century, the great Srivaishnava saint Sri Ramanujacharya took up his residence and lived here for about 14 years . It thus became a prominent centre of the Srivaishnava sect of Brahmins, who obtained from the Hoysala king Vishnuvardhana, who had become a follower of the Acharya, an assignment of the fertile tracts of land in the neighbourhood, especially of the Ashta Gramas, on either bank of the Cauvery. The temple is beautiful and the climb up offers you a fantastic view of the cauvery valley behind. The prashadham of puliyogare (tamarind rice) is famous and delicious, not to be missed!However steer away from the pesky goats that make a grab for the same!
So many lakes once you take a detour from the Mysore Road towards Melukote, you can literally walk into the lakes. (Chk photos)

Visit the ISKCON temple

by abi_maha

The temple is in the heart of the city- Mahalakshmi Layout/Yeshwantpur junction. For Krishna devotees it is a must do as the temple is beautiful and very very well maintained. Even for people who are not Indians this is a must do as you will find that most of the priests are well versed in English and other foreign languages. It is not a typical temple- ISKCON stands for the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. It follows the ways of life outlined in the Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavat purana.
One of the first memories I have of Iskon was as a fun temple where they serve 'samosas and snacks' as 'prashadam'. Also you have monitors in the premises that freely advertise who has sponsored today's lunch or other such donations. It is definitely a different experience, don't head here for as traditional experience.
