Club melkote and sravanabelugola for a weekend trip. Both places are religious and need to hike to the top of the temple. Good exercise for the body and fresh air. Drive between melkote and sravanabelugola is awesome. Melkote is a small village with some protected places by ASI.

we covered Melkote with Mahadevpura. the temple is very old and need renovation and bit of cleaning. the view from hill top is amazing. entire town can be viewed. It also gives a very good view of the pond. you can keep the not important belongings and shoes at flower vendors place.

Worth the drive from Mysore. Wonderful little place located on a hillock. A quaint temple town...worth climbing the temple on the hillock as the view from the top is quite magnificent.

There are 2 famous historic temples here. One of the temple is at the top of the hill, from where there is a nice view of the town. There is a place called akka thagi kola nearby.

About 60-90 minutes drive from Mysore. A sleepy hamlet with two important temples - Cheluva Narayanswamy temple on the ground level and Narasimha Swamy temple on a hillock. Beautiful and serene place surrounded by lush greenery, hills and a cool breeze. The temple premises are very peaceful and not crowded unlike other south Indian temples. Take some time out to...

From here you can also visit Tondanur a nearby temple town, the location of the famous Nambi Narayana, Parthasarathi, Yoganarasimha and Ramanuja temples. This is approximately 20 km (12.4 miles) from Melukote.
