Truly amazing piece of human excellence and creativity. Should not be missed in any Mysore trip. Situated at about 35 Kms distance from Mysore, this little hamlet will be a mesmerizing experience for any visitor. The Hoysala temple is now under the supervision of ASI, there is no rituals performed here now. So this is more of a historical site than a temple. But the sheer beauty of the carvings on the pillar is worth every effort to reach this place. A lifetime experience so to say.
If you are coming from Bangalore, take the Kanakpura Road/NH 209 route. With absolutely no traffic at all on this beautiful road, you can reach this place within two and a half hours. Carry enough food and water as there are almost no eateries. Google/Here Maps will guide you to the exact location. From here, one can visit Talakad/Shivanasamudra Falls which are 30-40 kms away but awesome NH 212 route will take no time to reach.
Please take some time out and visit this place and be amazed!
One small Tip:- do not forget to post a picture postcard in the post box kept within the premises. The postcard will have a cancellation of beautiful architecture of the temple. Post card and stamp are available for purchase in the small shops outside.
