Chamarajanagar Info

  • State: Karnataka
  • Famous for/as: Heritage
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.

Chamarajanagar can be reached by flights, trains and buses. Mysore Airport is the nearest airport which serves domestic airlines, whereas Coimbatore Airport is the nearest international airport. The nearest station to which travellers can board trains is Chamarajanagar Railway Station, which has limited operations. Besides, the destination is connected with frequent bus operations from Mysore and Coimbatore. The best time to explore Chamarajanagar is during the months of October to March.
