Hi my wife n self are travelling to Our Lady of Vellankani's Church next month. We would like to know the appropriate (Shortest, safest n cheapest) mode of travelling and the reasonable hotel to stay in for the weekend.
The last time we went was through Paulo Travels by road (Goa-Bangalore-Chennai-vellankani) and we stayed at Seagate Hotel since it was round the bend to the church.
Please advice the journey route too i.e. Goa-Bangalore-Chennai-??
Aal & Mich
shortest journey is Goa-Bangalore-Trichy-Velankanni.no need to go to Chennai.
From which city you would like to start for Velankanni church.?
It is pressumed that you wish to start from Goa. If so, reach Tiruchy via Bangalore .From Tiruchy you can visit Velankanni. Cheapest and safest mode of travelling will be by train.
Just for your information,you will come across people trekking the distance from Tiruchy to Velankanni during annual festival time!
Thank You Siva very much for your reply. It was very helpful n i will follow the route you have advised. Although i dont think i will get train bookings at this stage so late cause i want to travel next week but i will go ahead with bus bookings.
Do u have any hotel in mind which is within walking distance to the church.
Try any of the following:
Quality Inn (MGM group), Hotel Velankanni, Hotel Golden Sand, Hotel Sea Gate.
From Bangalore there busses straight to Velankanni operated by TN & Karnataka govts.Pl check. Have a nice journey.
