Good destination

SIDDHAGANGA . A famous centre for pilgrimage, Siddhaganga has a temple dedicated to Siddhalingeshwara on a hillrock which is held in high esteem by devotees. At the entrance of this temple six shrines can be seen. Near this temple, amongst scenic surroundings, stands a Veerashaiva Matha. The Matha feeds thousands of students and pilgrims daily. This is one of the important educational centres . SEEBI. Situated on the Tumakuru Sira Road at distance of 30 kms from Tumakuru, this village contains a beautiful temple of Narasimha. The terrakota and frescoes of this temple are of 18th century . KAIDALA. Originally named Kridapura, Kaidala acquired its present name because of a supernatural incident believed to have taken place here, connected with the legendary sculptor Jakanchary. A flaw was pointed out in masterpiece by this sculptor by another young sculptor called Dankana. This resulted in the senior sculptor cutting off his right hand. On building the kaidala keshava temple, Jakanchary's lost hand was restored and hence the name Kaidala (Kai means Hand in Kannda). To his great surprise, Jakanachary later found that Dankana was his own son . . This beautiful Keshava temple in the Dravidian style contains a 5 feet 6 inches tall figure of channigaraya . MADHUGIRI. Surrounded by hills, Madhugiri is a prosperous town famous for its pomegranates. It has one of the finest hill forts in the state. A feudal family of Vijyanagar had this place as their capital. It was here that the queen of Keladi, Veerammaji and her son were exiled by Haider Ali, in 1763 . Adjoining this fort is the Mallinatha Basti, a Jain temple. Apart from this temple Madhugiri also houses the Melleshwara and Venkteshwara temples. Both these temple have a huge pillars on which lamps are kept . Also at Madhugiri are several wells such as the Jainyana-bavi, the Arasana-bavi and the Pradhanara-bavi.

Perfect place for education tour

Tumour is famous for coconut trees in karnataka because of this it is called by the. The main attraction of tumkur is siddagang mutt which is world famous for its social service. The another major attraction is goravanalli lakshmi temple, which is close to Tumkur. It is good to visit during monsoon and winter seasons, you may feel quite uncomfortable during summer season due to high temperature. Apart from this we find famous engineering college in Karnataka is Siddagangs Instite Of Technology, which one of the top 10 college in Karnataka. We also find Madhugiri hill which is closer to Tumour and it renowned for the name 'EKASHILABETTA' (hill consisting of only one rock) which is just 20kms from Tumour. I hope if you visit Tumkur with your children's during weekdays definitely you enjoys the place. Thank you
