Visit during Kaveri Pushkaram

There is big crowd, it took one hour to have darshan. Karnataka govt has made no special arrangements for this historic temple during Puskaram. We can visit this temple during the visit of Srirangapatna. My wife lost her purse at this temple. There are thieves during this festive season.

Nimishambha temple

Its a very beautiful temple which caters to the need of all. Out side the temple there are huge banyan tree. One can sit on the benches under this tree and enjoy the beautiful flowing River Kauvery. It looks just serene. Those who are interested can get into chill water and enjoy playing. There is also coracle ride for 50 per head. Temple inside is quiet spacious and airy and beautiful. You can avoid long q if you buy Rs 20 tickets. Farm fresh vegetables and flowers are available at very cheap price.Over all a very nice place to visit everyone.Clean bathrooms too are available. Kids can enjoy horse ride too

A sacred place

Nimishamba Temple is one of the important temples. The temple is on the banks of Cauvery River. You get lot of fresh fruits and vegetables here. Recommend to buy fruits here. There are lot of Rose farms enroute to this temple and so you can also buy home made Gulkand or just for keeping.

Visit to temple never hurts

We headed to this place after visiting Ranganathittu and Ranganathaswamy temple. There is Ganjam River which flows right next to the Temple. ou have to wash your feet before heading to the temple (Recommended: just to follow the tradition). There is free food available at the temple on full moon days only.You can cover this place as part of your tour/trip to Srirangapatna. A road trip is best to cover Mysore and Srirangapatna in two days.
