    Chidambaram is a small town centered on the temple. Don’t expect a luxury hotel. This is a simple, clean hotel ; the advantage is that it is very close to the temple. You can easily walk 15 meters from the hotel to the temple. It’s an amazing, huge temple complex.

    Next to the temple

    Great location to go to the temple. You can leave your chapels in your room ;). Pretty basic and budget for a good price. The manager is pretty strict. Without a smile and a decent amount of English is just okay for one night.
