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

The car parking is provided towards one end of the famous historical huge... More
