Mysore is also known as the “Garden City” or the “City of Palaces”. Every year, We used to visit Mysuru during Dasara festival. This was our 5th Consecutive year. We started our journey around 10Am from Kanakapura raod. And it took 2 hours to reach to our destination from Bangalore. First we visited The Srirangapatna temple which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is one of the largest temples in Karnataka. This is the prime attraction in Srirangapatna. The entire town is surrounded by the river Kaveri to form a river island. Hindus come from far and wide to Srirangapatna to immerse the ashes of their dead relatives.
We started our journey from Kormangala on Sunday morning at around 7 AM. We were four of us and we hired a taxi for a hassle free journey. We had our breakfast in one of the restaurants in Kanakpura road and set off for our trip.The roads were in good condition and we were enthralled by the greenery on the way. We reached Shivansamudra at around 10 AM and our first stop was the Gaganachukki.
We finished our lunch from gudalur and then started our return trip towards bangalore via Bandipur where we once again got a chance to explore the beauty of that forest. We had 2 challenges while coming back one is we should reach Bangalore before 9pm so that we shouldn't pay fine for our rented bike as they still charge extra if we give the bike late. Second thing is my mobile was running on low battery and we were using an alternate road through kanaka pura from Mysore which is less rushy and peaceful comparing to the normal road. So I don't have any idea about the road till we reach Bangalore, still we managed to reach on time before my mobile get off.
We ride on the Kanakapura Road amidst the beautiful semi-urban landscape of Bangalore in the morning breeze. We stop to have an authentic South Indian breakfast with some of the delicacies of the area. We continue our journey after breakfast.
