travelling from chennai to pondicherry, via mama by bus+car/driver

by marieana

hi hi
i want to know if it's possible to travel from chennai to mama, visit some sites and then take a bus to go to pondicherry, the same day.
So I imagine it like this, take bus from chennai to mama at 8 am, reach there by 9.30, visit mainly dakshina chitra+five rathas (on foot is that possible, are they close?) then catch a bus to pondi ( wouldn't it be full?)
What would be cost if anyone has done that trip?

BTW, i would also like to know if you know any agent that would rent a car+driver from chennai to madurai at the cheapest price ever, at least at Rs 10000, is that possible, less than that, can it be?
cheers

Ofcourse you can cover D/Chitra, and five rathas and reach Pondi on the same day but it depends on how much time you will take at each place.
Example it takes about one hour to go aroumd D/chitra. You need to go round D/chitra only on foot.Location of five rathas is very far from D/chitra. So you need to take a bus ( there is a hopon -hop off bus service too)from Chennai to D/chitra whch is on the way to Mamallapuram. There are lots of buses at frequent intervals from Mamallapuram to Pondicherry.Even if on bus is full, you can wait for another which you will get in 10-15mnts time( so don't worry bout that).
A direct bus from Chennai to Pondi ia about 45 rupees. May be a bit more if you break your journey at above two places.

When you stay in Chennai, you can negotiate with a taxi/car driver about the charges to Madurai. Why don't you take a train?

Travel Tips for Chennai (Madras)

Chennai Beach

by Canadienne

Chennai Beach (or Marina Beach) is one of India's longest, running along 13km the city's coastline. It's a decent route to walk from the War Memorial to the San Thome church (very nice!). Move a couple of blocks inland from there and you'll find yourself at the Kapaleeswarar Temple, which I highly recommend visiting.

The beach is often crowded and very littered though. . .

Autorickshaws (Ricks)

by tayloretc

Be prepared to fix flat rates with autos before you go, and it shouldn't be the rate the driver quotes you first. (An Indian friend told me that for him to go a certain distance would be 50 rupees. Us together was 70. Me alone was originally quoted as 120.)

Government Museum

by illumina

I mainly remember the Archaeology section (as you might expect), which had a fantastic Bronze Gallery, full of statues; and some wonderful early Buddhist stone sculptures. There was also a good display on the Indus.

There was also a section on old coins, and an Anthropology department focused on the tribes of Southern India, but the rest of the museum was mostly stuffed animals in various poses!

When we were there the National Art Galley was closed as the building, a wonderful Mughal style edifice in red stone, was falling down.

In another building was a large bookshop, though sadly no novels.

Entry fee was 250INR for non-Indians. Photography is not allowed inside.

Madras-Cultural capital of India.

by radz

Madras(now its is called "Chennai") is the capital of Tamil Nadu state.Its gateway to South of India.Its coastal city ,famous for Carnatic music and Barata Natyam classical dance.
From Madras no place is very too far,other places in the state is well connected by road,rail&air.
Near Madras are two heritage places ,the Pallava Dynasty old capital Kanchipuram and Pallava Port town Mamallapuram.

Best time to visit Madras is November to Feb.

T his is lighthouse,48m above sea level,it is in southern end of Merina beach.Few years back one can climb up here ,from top floor can have a good view of Chennai&Merina beach.
Now can see from outside ,visiters not allowed to go inside.

This is boating spot, near Madras.The backwaters of Muttukadu is place for boating,water sport,windsurfing.
Its 24 km from City..
