On Sunday, we woke up quite late (as usual) and were debating whether we should go via Chikamagalur or take up the direct route via Sakleshpur and Hassan. We decided upon Chikamagalur and Sayon and Srishti joined us on a Pulsar. We left around 2 p.m. and reached Chikamagalur by 7 p.m.. The roads were brilliant, especially the ...

... temple is on a star shaped platform and is covered in beautiful carvings. I actually thought the ones at Halebeedu were a little more striking but that is probably because I saw Halebeedu first.

This is also a temple carved fully around the temple. There are some fairly small areas of new stone where there was damage but it is in good shape. It has the now familiar bands of carvings around the lower ...

    We had an excellent stay here and would definitely recommend. Was able to prepay online and was good value, on arrival staff were friendly and helpful, room was spotless and pleasant, the meal in the restaurant very good, and was only spoilt by England losing the 4th ODI, but it was good watching it in the bar with everyone else!
