Tirtha Yatra conducted its maiden group yatra to Chola Nadu Divya Deshams during the long Independence day holidays. This Yatra was one its kind amongst the yatras conducted by the other tour operators in terms of the facilities to the yatris.
The yatra was attended by twenty six yatris from Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chennai and was conducted for five days. It included a visit to the forty divya deshams of Chola Nadu area. By the grace of the Lord, our team of yatris had wonderful darshan in all the temples without missing even one temple. At every temple, the yatris were explained the sthala purana in detail so that they remember the temples they visited. The utmost comfort of the yatri was taken care in terms of food, accommodation and the travel. A team of Sri Vaishnava cooks travelled along with the Yatra to provide a sumptuous and tasty food to the yatris. The accommodation included three star stays in the hotels like Hotel Rayas and Hotel White Grand Palace. The travel was extremely comfortable in an air suspension AC luxury bus. The idea was to provide a homely experience to the yatris. We hope that this Yatra shall remain a memorable experience in the life of the yatris and opens a pavement for the other yatras to come.
Following are the experiences of the yatris who attended this Yatra.
The Yatra director is friendly and has a ready smile even at difficult situations. He is always present at ground zero. Please keep this up and do not dilute this as the company grows. The team has done a lot of homework about the hotels, timing of the temples and very resourceful. Three cheers!!!

The Chola Nadu Divya Desham Yatra program was well planned. Lot of trial and error has gone into the planning. Marvelous results came largely due to the divine intervention. The credit goes to the Yatra director. If I have to tell in one word, the Yatra was ecstatic.

The Chola Nadu Divya Desham Yatra was possible only by the grace of Supreme Lord, which I feel is impossible. The Lord was waiting for his devotee to give darshan. This experience can’t be described in words. Thanks to Tirtha Yatra team for their arrangements.

The Chola Nadu Divya Desham Yatra provided a lot of excellent information. It is better to choose this team for your pilgrimage tours.
The Yatra was surely positive for the simple reason that the interaction with the Yatra director will be a memorable one.
I would definitely tell them to try one of the yatras and experience the joy of having a friendly and informative director.
The Chola Nadu Divya Desham Yatra conducted under the Yatra director was awesome and very educative. The Vaishnava temples visited are lingering in my eyes. The management under the leadership of the Yatra director for food, accommodation and travel was really good. He stood as a guide and narrated the history of the temples visited.
This Yatra was marvelous. We enjoyed the hospitality of Yatra director and his narration was the best.
