    I wish to go to Salem with my wife to visit a few of the famous temples there. I live in Bangalore so I need to know how far Salem is from Bangalore?

    I would prefer driving rather than getting transport so if it is possible to drive from Bangalore to Salem please give me some guidance.

    The road distance from Bangalore to Salem is 206km and if you drive it would take you around 3 hours and 45 minutes going via NH 44.

    Traveling on a bus from Bangalore to Salem would take you slightly longer, due to the moderate speeds, but for your information, if you do decide to travel in a bus it would take you about 4 hours and 30 minutes.

    Taking a train from Bangalore to Salem is another option. The train is direct and leaves Bangalore Cantt (BNC) railway station and arrives at Salem Junction (SA) railway station in 3 hours and 45 minutes.
