By Car or Bike- Once you cross Yeshwantpur, stay on NH75 for about 185 kms. This stretch is mostly 6 lane and well maintained enabling you to maintain constant speed and enjoy the drive. A couple of kms after crossing Hassan turn left at Visveswarapura. After you turn left, its a 16 km drive on broken village roads to reach the church. After you've driven 16 kms, look to your left and a small mud trail going down the road will lead you to the church. Small cars and motorcycles can drive right up to the church. Driving time is just over 4 hours (one way) with pit stop(s).
By Public Transport- The best place to visit the Shettihalli Church in Karnataka is from Hassan. Hassan is about 40km from Shettihalli and easily reached by bus or train. You can get to the church from Hassan by using public transport or by hiring a rickshaw.
By Bus: Hourly buses leave from Hassan’s bus station to Shettihalli until 16:00. Hop on the bus, and tell the ticket collector you want to go to the church. They’ll know where to let you off. The bus will pass the path leading up the church (look on the lefthand side), but it’s not super obvious, so pay attention. You’ll have to walk through for 5 to 10 minutes to get to the ruins.If the bus goes over a big bridge over a river, you’ve gone too far. Luckily, you’ll be able to see the ruins on your left so you know where to walk to.
By Rickshaw: A rickshaw there and back, with about an hour waiting time, should cost no more than 600 Rs.
