I've done a quick search on the forum, but can't find anything on this topic.
On our trip to Tamil Nadu and Kerala in December I plan to stop on our drive from Pondicherry to Tanjore at Chidambaram in the morning and then either Gangaikondacholisvaram or Darasuram in the afternoon.
1. Does anyone have any contact details for a Brahmin Priest Guide at Chidambaram. I see that some travel companies use somebody there who also provides lunch is his home. Any contact details would be much appreciated.
2. If I have to chose between Gangaikondacholisvaram and Darasuram, which would you choose and why?
In case you're wondering why I have not mentioned Tanjore, it's because we have the whole of the next day to explore Tanjore.
