Another interesting place is Kuppalli, 5 kms from Thirthahalli , the birthplace of Rashtra Kavi Kuvempu. 250 yr old childhood home of the poet has been reconstructed without compromising the authenticity and is now a museum open to public. Walking through the corridors took us down the memory lane. Some of the earlier pictures of the poet himself and other veterans was a visual treat.
Our plan was to reach Shimoga City by sunset, via Koppa & Tirthahalli, with a stop at Kuppalli, the village where the great Kannada Poet Kuvempu's house stands as a Museum now. For a moment i caused confusion about the direction of the ride as i had led the group on the wrong road.
