Best to visit during Karthigai

We went after the Karthigai day and hence, there was not much to see except the deity. I am told that about a lakh devotees visit this temple during 1 month from the Diwali day till Karthigai. During that period there will be celebrations daily sponsored by both the locals and the visitors. within 10 kms from Tumkur city
