How to Explore Tiruttani Nearby temples

For those who do not know us, we are ardent Bike riders. Feel free to explore all our bike ride trips within Karnataka and other states (yep :)) in the categories section.

We decided to go on a one day trip from Bangalore by Train after a successful trip by train trip to Tiruvallur (near Chennai).

After considering our peaceful train journey to Tiruvallur, I looked for a similar experience on this trip as well.


A famous place known for one of the Six abodes of Lord Murugan, otherwise also famously called Thiruthani Murugan Temple. A famous tourist place, well connected by road and railways and even hotels for the long distance travelers.

So, we decided on Tiruttani.

Today, 4th of February 2017, we boarded an early morning train from Bangalore central KSR railway station to Arakkonam junction, to see Tiruttani and nearby temples. 

From Arakkonam Junction we hired an auto to reach Tiruttani Murugan temple located 15 kms north.

Expecting a long que on this auspicious day – Karthigai Star, the birth star of Lord Murugan, we didn’t waste any time before reaching the temple.

After a long que and a wonderful darshan Arulmigu Subramanya Swamy at Tiruttani temple, we returned back to Arakkonam for lunch. 

I didn’t bother to look for Tiruttani temple darshan timings as I knew it would be open till night since it was an auspicious day. 

Except on auspicious days, the temple remains closed for lunch and after 9pm.

Meantime, the auto driver made a deal with us that he will show around Tiruttani and Arakkonam for 2000 rupees till late evening. 

We liked the deal, and decided to explore the Tiruttani nearby temples as there were no other interesting choices planned for rest of the afternoon.

  3. Elambaiyam Kottur (Via Perambakkam), Sri Theivanatheeswarar Temple

There are many famous tiruttani surrounding temples.

While we were in Thiruvalangadu, we missed visiting the yet another famous, padal petra shiva sthalam, called Sri Tazuvikuzandheswarar Temple situated just 3kms away.  

Thanks to the auto driver from the local area, he took us to the above temples situated in different directions (the last two temples are situated a little closer).

He dropped us back at Arakkonam around 9 pm. 

After having dinner in a nearby restaurant, we then boarded the 10.20 pm Kaveri Express train to return to Bangalore. 

Hope this will help all those seeking a trip to Tiruttani nearby temples.
