Around 5kms from Banavasi is the archaeological site of Gudnapur known for a pillar inscription of the Kadamba king Ravivarma. The inscription, in a box headed script, reveals the origin and genealogy of Kadambas and has a description of a temple, palace, harem and dancing halls. The remains of these structures were excavated in Gudnapur along with precious stones and jewelry. The ruins lie on an elevated bund looking down upon vast fields that are flooded during the peak monsoon period.
