Perfect place for education tour

Tumour is famous for coconut trees in Karnataka because of this it is called by the name 'Kalpataru Nadu'. 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 Institute 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 'ekashila betta' (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.
