Guys don't miss this place .The temple is really beautiful and stunning view of KRS back waters from this place. Best place to visit sun set , earlier this temple was submurged in back waters later it is rebuilt on the bank so it's really exciting to view the Structure. We spent around a hour here.

Around 2pm we reached Mysore and visited historical palace . Entry fee was around 40₹ . We saw all corners of palace and it was priceless . Now the time fill our stomach we went to daba and ordered roti curry .After lunch we headed towards himadgopalswamy , Gundlupete Which is around 78 kms from Mysore. On the way don't miss to have watermelons near najungudu.
