Devi’s Roof Top Mountain View Restaurant open for the season.

by

One of the new institutions of Tiruvannamalai opened today, Devi’s Rooftop. South Indian food. This is a small café run by a local woman who is a great cook. It will be open morning, noon and night. Today is their first serving of the season.

So far there are no signs, but it is easy to find, though.

Drive out of Tiruvannamalai from Ramana Ashram on Bangalore Road (Chengam Road), until you are almost at Pradakshina Road. You will see an intersection like this. The faint blue sign in the distance past the cycle is where the Pradakshina Road begins.

Here it is on a map.

The restaurant is located in Nandi Nagar, named for the big Nandi right past the road to the café. If you see this Nandi, you have gone too far (by maybe 40 meters).

If you can see this small police substation, you have gone too far.

On the corner there is a painting of Yogi Ramsurat Kumar.

This is done by a local artist who calls himself Rambo. (He is a local man with an interesting story. Go here to find out more.)

Turn right at the painting.

      Ask one of the Ramanasramam (or better yet, the drivers in front of Sheshedri Ashram). Ask for Karuna, her husband.
