“It is best to visit the place during prayer times, which is a great experience. The chants of the monks in the cavernous prayer hall create an atmosphere of serenity. The prayer hall itself has large idols of the Bodhisattvas and the walls are dotted with the stories from the Jataka tales, depicting various stages in the life of Buddha.” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Pooja Bisht.

Day 1. Feed the elephants at the Dubare Elephant Camp

“I absolutely loved my visit to this camp. This is a fun place to be, as the river is quite shallow and you can play in the waters, do river rafting, and finally spend up close personal time with the Elephants.” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Avantika Kumar.

“At this place, the river Kaveri (or Cauvery) is joined by two other Rivers Kannike and Sujyoti. While the joining point of Kaveri and Kannike can be seen, it is said that River Sujyothi joins these two from underneath. It is considered a sacred place for pilgrims to take a dip here and perform rituals before proceeding to Talacauvery - the birthplace of River Kaveri. ” shares HolidayIQ reviewer Aranha Ag.
