Trip to Melkote was indeed a great getaway. Had wonderful darshan in Cheluvanarayana swamy temple. There are other places to see such as Akka Thangi kola, Danushkodi etc which are in close proximity to the temple. If you have your own car, that would be the best. For lunch, do not miss Subbanna Mess! The puliogere and the sweet pongal... More

The temple is a very nice one. The highlight is a very small nondescript little roadside mess called "Subanna Mess" in the town center. Ask anyone in the town center for directions. Don't go by the ambiance which is practically nothing. The food, however, is heavenly and for the Gods! The puliyogare dish here is the highlight!!!

Rally surprise to note that a place near MYSORE is having a calm atmosphere and very peaceful for making our prayers. The temple is on a small rock type hill but hard little but after dharshan you feel healthy/refreshed. Within a distance of 5/7 feet you can see the god. Very ancient temple. Try to reach here by 10 am.... More

Ancient temple at this height is amazing and every one should go and see this ancient temple once in their lives. It will be difficult to believe how such a temple at this top had built on olden days. Once you are on top of this temple, you have to be utmost careful. There you can see lots of monkeys... More
