“Serene Temple town.”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Melukote is a serene & sleepy temple town.The ancient temples of Cheluvarayaswamy & Mahalakshmi is a rich archeological monument & the deity is really awesome & provides instant peace!!
The vast temple precincts provide great solace & satisfaction.
Yoga narasimha swamy temple is on the hillocks nearby & needs a climb of 150-200 steep steps.Lots of monkeys abound this stretch.

The age old Subanna Mess is a never miss eatery.Run by two brothers,they really take care of guests in a warm hospitable way. Puliyogare & Sweet Pongal(Sugar & Jaggery varieties) are simply delicious!!

“Nice small town soaked in history”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

The temple atop the hill, Akka & Thangi ponds, the history that surrounds the place makes it a good spot for thinking about the past days.
Claim to fame will be as the location for Aiswarya Rai's "Barso Re Megha" from Guru.
Though I wouldn't like to out it that way, I guess the above mention should have got your interest by now.. :)
