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

Melkote is a famous religious place associated with Sri Ramanujacharya. However it also is a great place to visit for ancient architecture and history. The route from Mandya to Melkote is very scenic and worth enjoying on a slow drive. Melkote has temples both at the base and on a hill top which are really beautiful with wonderful carvings in...

Places to see in Melukote: 1) Sree Cheluvanarayanaswamy Temple 2) Yoganarasimhaswamy Temple 3) Raya Gopura 4) Akka Thangi Kola 5) Dhanushkoti Yoganarasimhaswamy Temple requires a climb of about 250 steps after parking the vehicle. The other attractions are pretty to visit. Overall it requires about 6 hours. When done exploring, don't forget to have Puloyogare and sweet Pongal at Subbanna... More

It is a piligrimage place and one should not comment about such places. It holds a temple for Sri Cheluva Narayana Swamy and Sri Yoganarasimha.

This place is simply fantastic. It is famous for the Vairumudi utsava. Vairumudi is a crown studded with gems and jewels donated by Maharaja of Mysore. This festival happens once a year. There are two temples - Cheluvanarayana swamy temple which is a very historic one. It's a must see. There is a Yoganarasimha swamy temple on top of the... More

Visit the temple of Cheluvanarayana Swamy and then go to a place called Dansuhkodi. This place is about 6km from the main temple. Here according to history lord Rama and Sits had stayed and when Sits... More
