The town is a land of old temples. The Narashima temple was on a hill top with an interesting architecture. The Government must take steps to improve the approach to the temple. The Chelluvanarayanasamy temple was also a old and well maintained.

From Bangalore, we took the NH 48 upto Neligere after which we turned left into the Nagamangala road before reaching Melkote. This route which though a bit longer was a smooth ride with hardly any traffic, which we face when we take the Mysore road. The two main temples in this town are the Yoganarsimha Temple which is situated on... More

It’s about 140km from Bangalore city via Mandya off Mysore highway. Google would suggest 2 more routes, via Kanakapura road & Nelamangala-Kunigal. I definitely suggest Mysore road over the other two options because you have plenty of options to fill & refill yourself. We left the city at 6.30am and stopped at Adiga’s at Maddur for breakfast around 8am.Take right... More

From many days my fiance and I were planing to visit Melukote, finally the day has come. We started from Bangalore at 7.45 AM since we were aware of the journey time will be approximately 4 hours. The first we visited Kalyani, beautifully structured pond. Unfortunately it's maintained very badly. A small temple next to Kalyani, Batru gave some information... More

The details can be found in wiki page : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melukote The road to Melukote is very well laid out and well maintained and drive is very scenic. Apart from the main Cheluvanarayana Swamy Temple and the Yoganarasimha temple on the hillock there are many other small temples and magnificent Kalyani (pond). There are close to 300+ steep stone steps to... More
