you can take howrah (HWH) - kanyakumari (CAPE) express (12665) and get down at trichy (TPJ) and take a bus or cab to velankanni.

or take a flight to chennai and from there take a bus or anoter train.

Hello and just want to say thanks for your reply

Also if you could answer.

How long does it take from Kolkata to trichy by train?

Also if you could give me some websites to book online that will be big help.
