"Amazing experience to the city of hospitality"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 12, 2014
It was really excellent experience when we went to Siddhapur. We went by Train till Talaguppa and another 20 Kilometres by Bus. In Siddhapur first we visited to Shankara matha a holy temple of Sharada mata and Aadi Shankarachaarya. After That We visited to Gol Bhavi In Bilagi which is a pond surrounded with plenty of canals which used by ancient king to escape. Near to Gol Bhavi Another old Jain Basadhi is also there. These monuments are the real examples of old architecture.

After this we visited to Burude falls which is on the way to Kumta which can give you immense pleasure of trekking experience. It's really tough experience without the help of local guys. In between as we didn't find the hotels there, we had lunch in some local people's house only thy are treating us as their own guests.

If you are fed up with City and City culture It is the best place to visit.
Special Notes: Jog falls, Yaana, Keladi, Ikkeri, Sigandhuru, Banavaasi are the nearby must visit places
