CMC Hospital Vellore

Mostly people travel to vellore from different parts of the country
or abroad for one reason, CMC (christian medical college) for treatments.
CMC Vellore ranked 2nd top medical college in India next to AIIMS, Delhi.




Best ways to travel:

Vellore is connected by trains with other parts of India. Best option is to travel to chennai by train or flight and then take a bus or train to vellore or katpadi station (vellore station). Trains like Brindavan Exp., Lalbagh Exp. etc from chennai to bangalore goes via katpadi (vellore). Its only 120 kms from chennai. But the trains stop only 2-3 mins in Katpadi station. So keep that in mind if you are carrying heavy luggages. From katpadi CMC is only 5-6 kms.


There are lots of places to stay in vellore during your visit to CMC, there are cheap and decent lodges and hotels near vellore cmc, such as divya guest house, arun lodge etc in baburao street which are pretty decent.

Being a non-south indian.. visiting Vellore, one of my concerns were food, because if you are not accustomed of the south Indian food you will have difficulty to stay there, trust me i'm saying it from the experience.  

If you are coming from northern or north-east part of India to vellore and not used to with south indian food.. NO WORRIES.
There are lots of north indian and bengali hotels in baburao street near CMC vellore. Hotel Rimpa in baburao street is one of them.

And after that if you want to go for sight seeing while staying in vellore you can go visit the Golden temple & the vellore fort which are quite amazing.

If you are going for treatment at CMC, its better to stay close to the hospital. There are several guest houses/lodges near the CMC hospital just across the street. Some of the contacts i have given below.

  1. Very informative post. Thanks for sharing. Counted amongst South India's oldest cities, Vellore is a fine place on the banks of the Palar River with a fairly large number of tourist attractions. The Vellore Fort here packs in most of the tourist attractions. Check out all best hotels in Vellore also.
