Top 10 Railway Stations In Tamil Nadu

The Top Ten
1 Salem Junction

Salem Junction is very important because trains going to Southern Tamil Nadu (Madurai, Trichy) and trains going to Kerala, Mangalore need to pass via Salem. Believe me, Salem Junction is far better than Hyderabad Junction. It's very neat and clean.

Salem Junction is the cleanest station in Tamil Nadu. During nighttime, this station becomes peaceful. Hotel and restaurant options are available near this station. I have never seen any trains skipping this junction except for some freight trains.

This is the center place for all the districts and connects the many districts by transport.

2 Madurai Junction

Madurai Junction is one of the largest railway stations in South India. It has high passenger traffic and has been awarded consecutively as the cleanest railway station in India. It is one of the oldest stations and connects most of the cities in India.

Madurai city is one of the most popular destinations in South India. This railway station received the cleanest award in 2018. The number of passengers is increasing day by day. Therefore, the Ministry of Railway provides more schemes for this station. This is a good revenue station in Indian Railways. Madurai division is the second biggest railway division in Southern Railway.

3 Chennai Central

Chennai Central is the biggest railway station in South India and the 5th largest railway station in India. Also, it's the top railway station in Tamil Nadu. Salem is the second-top railway station and junction in Tamil Nadu.

Every train must stop at least for 20 minutes in this station. No other station in our state has such credit.

It's quite obvious. There's no comparison with Chennai Central.

4 Coimbatore Junction

Coimbatore Junction is the busiest railway station and collects high revenue in Tamil Nadu, next to Chennai Central. It's a very clean station, unlike any I've ever seen. It has connectivity throughout India. There's a fully electrified lane from Chennai Central and you can reach Chennai Central in less than 7-8 hours! There's no traffic congestion at all and it has double electric lines.

Coimbatore Junction is the best train station in Tamil Nadu.

It's not a junction station. Real junctions in Coimbatore city are Coimbatore North, Podannur, and Irugur.

5 Chennai Egmore
6 Tiruchirappalli Junction

I have traveled for seven years and spent at least one hour at this junction every day. It's a great place. At that time, I did not know it was the best, but later when I visited other places, I understood that Trichy Junction is the best.

The best part of Trichy Junction is that the bus stand is nearby and it has a ground behind it. So, the junction is quite airy and there's not much pollution. There is a nice church behind the junction. If someone has to wait long, they can visit there.

The foot overbridge in all 7 platforms of Trichy is likely to be opened in February. The future plan is to include escalator service in all the platforms along the footbridge.

7 Erode Junction

Erode Junction is one of the best railway stations. The entrance is very appealing and neat. It's the hub for Salem, Chennai, Coimbatore, Karur, and Trichy junctions. A new route is planned from Erode to Palani Junction.

The station is very clean, neat, and fully secured by police. Erode Junction has elevators and lifts. It's the busiest railway station in Tamil Nadu. Erode city has diesel loco sheds and electric loco sheds. This is my city.

Erode Junction is one of the best railway stations in the SR zone. It handles the largest number of WAP-4 engines in Indian Railways, which looks amazing. Each and every train stops for more than 3 minutes for engine swapping, technical works, and water loading.

8 Villupuram Junction

Villupuram Junction is one of the busiest railway stations in South India. The passenger strength is increasing day by day. It serves as a food supply station for trains going from south to central India. It's one of the oldest stations in Southern Railways. It connects all major cities in India like Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, etc. Most trains stop at this station for three to five minutes.

Villupuram Junction is always busy. Everyone can easily go to any other corner of Tamil Nadu from here.

Villupuram Junction is a food-serving station for long-distance passengers!

9 Jolarpettai Junction

Jolarpettai Junction provides easy connections from South to North and all major cities in India.

10 Tirunelveli Junction

I love Tirunelveli station because it has all facilities and a nice environment.

Tirunelveli Junction is the biggest station and has the third-longest train. I love my Tirunelveli.

Tirunelveli Junction is quite an important junction in South Tamil Nadu.

The Contenders
11 Katpadi Junction

Vellore Katpadi is one of the busiest and most active railway stations. Trains from big cities like Trivandrum, Coimbatore, Kochi, Mangalore, Bangalore, and many more must pass through Katpadi. This shows how important Vellore Katpadi railway station really is.

Even though Katpadi Junction is the busiest, a lot of facilities still need to improve. The name should be changed to Vellore Katpadi Junction because people think Vellore is a separate city.

Katpadi Junction provides connectivity to all major cities in India.

12 Arakkonam Junction

Frequent trains are available to the capital of the state at Arakkonam Junction!

13 Kovilpatti Railway Station

Kovilpatti Railway Station may not be a junction, but it's one of the busiest stations of Southern Railway with high revenue. It's well connected with every part of the city. A string of restaurants and shops in the vicinity never sleep. It should be in the Top Ten!

Kovilpatti Railway Station may not be a junction, but it's one of the busiest stations of Southern Railway. It generates high revenue and is well connected with every part of the city. A string of shops and restaurants in the vicinity never sleep. It's simply great!

Kovilpatti is one of the fastest-growing cities of Tamil Nadu and is highly industrialized. People's hard work and die-hard enthusiasm add to the prosperity of the city in spite of any political patronage. It should be in the top ten!

14 Mayiladuthurai

Mayiladuthurai Junction would easily rank at the top if the train timings were proper. Almost all trains from Chennai arrive here between 2-4 AM. Even with this schedule, it is one of the top stations in the TPJ division. After TPJ, VM, and TJ, it is the highest revenue generator in terms of passenger traffic. If it is granted district status, it will experience the growth that was previously denied. Furthermore, if Southern Railways reopens the line connecting MV with Mayuram town (MVM), Mannampandal, Tirukadaiyur, Tharangambadi, and Karaikkal, it will greatly enhance additional goods transportation from MARG port.

15 Karur Junction

Karur Junction is a very neat and clean railway station in the Central Tamil Nadu zone! It's also a very busy station in the Salem division. Karur textiles and garments staff are connected with this junction.

Karur Junction is one of the clean and quiet stations in Tamil Nadu with daily passengers ranging from 5,000-7,000 per day. It's also an A-grade junction in the Salem division! It's an important junction which connects Madurai with Salem, Bangalore, and delta districts with Kerala.

16 Kumbakonam Junction

This is one of the best railway stations I have come across. It's the cleanest and neatest railway station ever in South India.

The Temple City railway station is very clean. It was the 2nd cleanest railway station in TN and the 7th cleanest railway station in India.

17 Dindigul Junction

Dindigul railway junction is one of the best in Southern Railway in Tamil Nadu.

18 Virudhunagar

Virudhunagar is one of the cleanest and a 4-way junction. It's located in a great geographic location which covers the 4 different routes: Madurai, Tirunelveli, Tenkasi, and Sivagangai.

Passenger safety is perfect at Virudhunagar. It's the cleanest station. Food and water service are also the best.

Virudhunagar is the cleanest railway station in Tamil Nadu. It has the longest platform. The announcements are perfect.

19 Thanjavur Junction

More trains should originate from Thanjavur. More trains to Chennai, Tirupati, Trivandrum, Tirunelveli, etc. should be available from Thanjavur.

Thanjavur Junction is one of the historic junctions of India. It's an important junction in the important tourist spot of Tamil Nadu. It's very well connected with the rest of the city and all points of Tamil Nadu.

20 Nagercoil Junction

Nagercoil Junction is the cleanest railway station and is A-grade. It is super.

21 Thoothukudi Junction

Thoothukudi is not a junction, but it is still good.

22 Kanyakumari Junction
23 Chengalpattu Junction
24 Walajah Road

Walajah Road Junction Railway Station is South India's first station. The station is located in Ammor (Walajah). Passengers have been requesting more train stoppages and station development for a long time. But the railway department is not considering it seriously. So, please take the necessary action.

Walajah Road is one of the fourth-oldest stations in India.

Please consider, railway department, this station needs development. "Old is Gold."

25 Karaikudi

Karaikudi is really clean. No garbage is found both inside and outside of the junction.
