Travelling to Tiruvannamalai

I am planning to visit Tiruvannamalai from Chennai (where my hotel has been booked)

There used to be Trains from Chennai on the Meter Guage section and now this section appears to be closed due to Broadguage Conversion. As per the below link by Souther Railways which is of last year shows that some special passenger trains were run.


I searched for Express trains and could not find any, and even if there are any Passenger Trains being run i would not recommend them so travelling by Train is ruled out

So either you would need travel by Bus from the Coimbedu Bus Station (not sure about the spelling, something similar) or by Taxi.
