Could some veteran please post about the best "way" to visit thiru vEngadam today?
Best day of the week, Best time, where to stay etc.

Going with the TTDC/ITDC tourist bus for the "jargandi" dharshanam is
not quite satisfying. I was told the walk up the hill is a lot more satisfying,
even if you miss the "jargandi" dharshanam.
