Melukote is an important religious centre associated with the Vaishnavite saint Sri Ramanuja. Even for those not interested in religion or history the place offers quite a lot of photo opportunities. The Cheluva naryanaswamy temple in the town has some very interesting sculptures on the pillars. Notable among them are the knotted ropes sculpted out of granite. (see photo) .The Yoga narasimha temple situated on top of ahillock offers a breathtaking view.
The town is also considered a lucky mascot for some film makers who make it a point to shoot at least one sequence here.
