I visited 2nd time to this temple of Shiva,Manjunatha. I very much attracted by the huge peak a rams. Very calm and serene. 7ponds is another vital one. Lookers and Brahmins are so cordial and helped for the smooth dar shan. It is situated very near to heart of city so no problem in getting conveyance. Very nice dar shan.

I hope u have the right place. We were returning from Karkala and stopped here. Paid $ 1.- to use camera and entered after removing shoes. It was in very good shape with many neat architectural details. The Gold emblem is viewed thru chained gates which we took a picture using my zoom option.
