This Shekthram is situated in Madras-Bangalore Rail line. Fast way is to take brindaavan express/Tirupati express from Madras to Arakonam Junction and take Bus from there.Bus facility is not very good from Arakonam (you can hire an auto for Rs 125/). Sholingar Railway station is 9 miles from the temple,which is far away from the temple.Don't get down at sholingur station to go to temple.

One can take a direct bus from Madras to Thiruththani ( famous Murugan temple town) and from there you can get plenty of buses to sholingur.You have to take an auto from Sholingur bus stand to go to Kondapalayam where the both Narasimhar and Hanuman temle are situated.Thiruvallur divya desam is close to Thiruththani and if you are taking a Cab you can cover that temple also on your return to Madras. Moderate facilities are there for stay. There is a big Kalyana Mandapam for organized group tours, and several "Mess" facilities are there.Sunday,Friday are crowded days in the temple.Beware of fierceful monkeys on your way to hill top. The scenic beauty from the top of the hill is wonderful.Remeber to take a dip in the Takkan kulam. Wonderful tank with full of water for the most of the time in the year.
