himavad gopalaswamy betta

We adventourists visited Chamarajanagar to visit the most famous himavad gopalaswamy betta and to have darshan of lord krishna. This temple as the name says is on the top of a hill. With special permission we could go for a trekking however our trip was excellent. Beware we are not allowed to take Alcohol, cigars and plastics on the hill therefore dont ever carry it, if you do then you'll have a big problem. The officers dont keep your alcohol but they just tell you to throw.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food and shopping? Nothing indeed however sight-seeing may be hill top points and of course the historic temple.

Chamarajanagar Overview

Chamarajanagar is situated on the southern tip of the state of Karnataka. Situated along the Cauvery River and surrounded by Erode District of Tamil Nadu and Wayanad District of Kerala, Chamarajanagar came into existence after the division of Mysore District.

Earlier the destination was known as Arikottara, which was later named after Chamaraja Wodeyar, the Wodeyar king of Mysore. In ancient times, the region was inhabited with tribes such as Soligas, Yeravas, Jenu Kurubas and Betta Kurubas.

Chamarajeshwara Temple, one of the ancient temples of the region, provides evidence of rich cultural heritage. The shrine was constructed under the reign of Mummadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar in 1826. One of the attractions of the destination is the Vijaya Parsvanath Basadi, a holy Jain shrine. It was constructed by Punisadandanayaka, the commander of the Hoysala king Gangaraja, in 1117 A.D.

Major attractions of the destination are Bandipur Wildlife Sanctuary and Biligiri Rangana Hills Wildlife Sanctuary. The destination has a famous tiger reserve, Bandipur National Park, situated in the foothills of Nilgiris, which was established in 1931 by the Mysore Maharajas. Another popular tourist attraction is M.M. Hills, Male Mahadeshwara Hills, which is formed by seven hills. Chamarajanagar is famous for mulberry crop production and rearing of silk worms.
