Siva Sannidhi Accommodation Facility



To read an earlier posting on Siva Sannidhi, before the construction of the new annexe building, go to this link here.


I have received emails from readers eager to view the completed new annexe at Siva Sannidhi. I made this original posting of the new annexe, at this link here but now construction is complete and the new accommodation annexe which has 39 rooms is now fully operational. 

I am posting the below photographs to give an idea of the rooms and the facility. All rooms have two single cots, tiled floors, mosquito net windows, fan, attached western style bathroom and a small dressing room with sink. Bedding i.e. mattress, top sheet and pillows are standard in all rooms. 

The annexe is very quiet, comfortable, a two minute walk from Ramana Ashram and shops, and most importantly has a magnificent darshan of Arunachala. Accommodation rates are very reasonable and except over Deepam, long stays are allowed. The week of Deepam is always heavily oversubscribed, so the facility has no rooms available at that time. Siva Sannidhi has a dining hall in which food (Andhra Style, medium heat) is served three times a day). 

The manager and workers at Siva Sannidhi are very friendly and helpful and the facility which attracts a pilgrim type visitor does not have a commercial or worldly atmosphere. The new building at Siva Sannidhi is by far and away one of the most pleasant and convenient accommodation facilities located in the Ramana Nagar side of Tiruvannamalai. 

Arunachala Grace represents Siva Sannidhi as booking agent. So for more information or to make a reservation, please use our email contact at the top left side of this page.
