Chidambaram Attractions: What to do & Places to Visit in Chidambaram
"In case some one is close to Chidambaram, it is worth travelling another 20-25 kms to the Pichavaram Mangrove Forest. It is advisable to take a row boat and not a motor boat as the experience will be better. The Restaurant in the Pichavaram rain forest is also quite passable - the vegetable thali wa..."s quite good

"thillai kali amman temple is around 1 - 1.5 kms from the main thillainathar temple of dikshithars. there is a vinayagar and murugan sannithi inside. then the main kali amman shrine is there. But the star attraction is the vermilion strewn thillai kali amman who is ukram in nature but benevolent to h..."er worshippers. the main temple is surrounded by different ammans. and a bairavar shrine is also there. overall the temple is very old and is a must visit for those who visit the main thillai nathar temple.

"I had heard about this place sometime back from a few of my colleagues..and when we wanted a place to visit en route from trichy to pondy, this was it!we started from trichy at 9 and arrived at pichavaram at 12.30..it is 178 km as per the map..after a quick lunch - which was OK(fried fish not so goo..."d), we opted for the 1 hour motor boat ride...it was very sunny and looking at the people getting baked in the row boat, i feel motor boat is a better option..they take us into the mangrove forests at various points and bring us back in an hour..there is a 4hr row boat option too which includes a visit to the beach but opt for it only in good weather. the whole visit including the telescope tower lasted for 3 hours..there is nothing else to do around there...though you may accomodate chidambaram temple or parangipettai estuary which are nearby..
