Two of my companions escaped the train station in Tiruvannamalai late around evening time. They waved to an “ordinary” looking auto rickshaw and after that made a beeline for their lodging. First the driver “couldn’t discover” their inn and continued to take them to another “inn” which was completely reserved. My companions even addressed the “lodging” who affirmed that it was totally reserved out. The individuals at the “workplace” stated, “no madam” and rather they suggested that they get in one of their “taxis” at the present time and do a voyage through Tiruvannamalai.
