The small town near Mysore is really worth a visit. You will not see (m)any tourists and get a good insight in Indian culture.

We made a day trip to Melkote from Mysore and enjoyed the walk up a gentle hill to reach the the heritage area atop. The temples have interesting anecdotes and Melkote is also a centre for Sanskrit. Popular filming location for Kannada movies as well
