Karkala Bahubali, temples and other photos

Updated March 2021 after my recent visit. Arrived sharply at 7.30, the opening time but as expected they were closed still. Took some photos from outside.

Karkala is a taluk headquarter in Udupi district, Karnataka. This post shows you couple photos taken near one of the places of tourist interest in Karkala, Gomateshwara(aka Bahubali Statue).

Chaturmukha Basadi: View from top of the hill on which Bahubali Statue is located. This temple is based on jain architecture and hosts statues of different Jain leaders.

‘Rama samudra’ lake. Municipality water supply for the Karkala town comes from this lake. (I'd thought it to be a river, thanks to Devika for correcting)

  1. Rural Karnataka is a lovely place. Great photos. I've never holidayed in Karnataka. I've been only to Bangalore and Mysore.

    Kerala is also another beautiful place.

  2. I welcome you to explore Karnataka further. Check Coorg beside other popular places...

  3. I am from karkala, and I like the way you are writing about it. :)
    I liked this article a lot.
    By the way, I am also a programmer and I work and vernacular languages. I was thinking given your Kannada interests you might have some comments. I have found this new software called http://quillpad.in/kannada
    I would like to know your comments on it. It's pretty good according to me.

  4. @Sandesh: Thanks
    @Sapna: Thanks.

    I have been using Quillpad for quite sometime but I sometime and it is good, but it takes few seconds to render my english text into Kannada Unicode character. I use vishalonnet most of the time, as it directly types in Kannada. I'm not complaining, but Quillpad can get better. All the best

  5. but Quillpad is very good when I need to store the english characters used to generate Kannada script. (Kannada characters cant be saved as easily as english, so saving english character and regenerating Kannada word will be handy at times.

  6. Oh, beautiful post and pictures. I've been to these places, and it is amazing.

  7. Hi Celine.

  8. Yes, very interesting and, in fact, got an opportunity to be there 4 times last year.

  9. Oops, I'm poor at this:
