Melukote near Mandya

Melukote is a scenic temple town off Bangalore-Mysore highway. It is located about 30 kms from Mandya and has couple of major temples, one located on a hilltop.

We visited Melukote in April, wrong season, wrong time. We reached there by afternoon, only to learn that temple opens by 5.30 PM. As we weren’t keen on waiting, we left the place, but not before taking some photos

 Dried up location- should be green and refreshing post monsoon and even more scenic during sunrise/sunset

Should visit this place again
