Uttara Kannada is one of my favorite hangouts to celebrate nature. The Malenadu region receives plenty of rain fall every year to rejuvenate the water bodies.Sirsi, a small town in Uttara Kannada district is considered a hub for local tourism. Every place around Sirsi is unique and mesmerizing. One amongst them isYana, a mythical place surrounded by thick western ghats forests, has unusual rock formations. A pilgrimage center, otherwise known as Bhairaveshwara shikara and Mohini shikara because of Shiva temple within the caves. The rocks are composed of black limestone.
