Melkote
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Melukote is a place of temples and attractive picnic spots around. The place has mythological, historical and contemporary importance. The Vairamudi annual festival is just marvelous and unique. The place needs to be cleaned and maintained.

Recently we went with family to this place after claimbing shravanbelagola.You have to climb atleast 650 steps before you reach temple.Temple is good but beware of monkeys.We had best south indian iyengar food in subbanna mess where they sell iyengar speciality masala also.We ate ate and purchased purchased masala till our car was full.A good one day outing from bangalore

Melukote is a serene & sleepy temple town.The ancient temples of Cheluvarayaswamy & Mahalakshmi is a rich archeological monument & the deity is really awesome & provides instant peace!!
The vast temple precincts provide great solace & satisfaction.
Yoga narasimha swamy temple is on the hillocks nearby & needs a climb of 150-200 steep steps.Lots of monkeys abound this stretch.

The age old Subanna Mess is a never miss eatery.Run by two brothers,they really take care of guests in a warm hospitable way. Puliyogare & Sweet Pongal(Sugar & Jaggery varieties) are simply delicious!!

The temple atop the hill, Akka & Thangi ponds, the history that surrounds the place makes it a good spot for thinking about the past days.
Claim to fame will be as the location for Aiswarya Rai's "Barso Re Megha" from Guru.
Though I wouldn't like to out it that way, I guess the above mention should have got your interest by now.. :)

Melkote is idealy located about 40 kms from Mysore the seat of Lord Narasimha.

A small temple on top of the hill over looking entire perifery of the town. Always frequented by tourists and devotees. A huge temple pone on the foot hill where devotees take bath before claimbing the hill and have dharshan of the Lord.

We can have secenic view from the top the peripheri ofMysore partly visible from there. One of the topurist destination around Mysore
