Travel Tip: The easy way to visit these eight temples is to reach
Azhvar thirunagari(Thirukkurugur) and from there hire a taxi or van
and in half a day all the temples can be visited. It is also possible to
start the journey from Srivaikundam. In other books you may notice
that the travel information is given with respect to railway station.
Since the railway station at Srivaikundam and Azhvar thirunagari are
far from the town,it is not convenient to use train journey. Also the
frequency of the train service is poor.Bus/Taxi on road is more reliable
and faster.

Our sincere thanks to Sri.Maharabooshanam Satakopan of Then


thirupperai (our satsangh member) for providing this travel
information.
