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

Subanna mess at Melkote serves delicious food. I enjoyed today and also when ever we visited Melkote...the mess is made in a house....the rate for the lunch is reasonable...they give so much quantity....situated on the hill and at a religious place, it is quite clean... Sambar rice, Podiyegre and Sweet are very nice....

Like most of the Hoysala architectures, there are some brilliant carvings. The most important temple is Cheluvanarayana temple and has a huge complex. There are some brilliant carvings within the temple complex and be sure to spend some time to soak in its beauty. Also don't miss the Yoganarasimha temple at the top of the hill. There are steps from... More
