Bankapur Tourism & Travel Guide

A small town in the Haveri District, this was once the glorious capital of the Rashtrakuta Kings. After the downfall of the Rashtrakuta Empire, the empire moved from the hands of one dynasty to the other before it was occupied by the sultans and then the British. This place is well mentioned in ancient Jain scripts and this is evidence enough to prove that this is also a Jain centirc area. The two main temples here are the Nagareshwar Temple for the Hindus and a Jain Temple too. The Bankapur Peacock Sancturay is a popular tourist attraction too.

Best time to visit - January,September,October,November,December
About 100kms west of Mysore, the hilly hamlet of Kodagu (formerly known as Coorg) is located in the evergreen highlands of the Western Ghats. This charming district beckons tourists with its spice gardens, cardamom forests and a sea of coffee plantations. Travel to Coorg for the wide array of adventure activities. Raft through the white rapids of the Barapole river, trek across the grasslands of the Kopatty-Kalugundi trail or quad biking through the Chevalara falls. For those seeking a more relaxed experience, fishing at the Valnoor and Bheemeshwari fishing camps or simply wandering through coffee plantations are some of the most sought after things to do in Coorg. The 17th century Madikeri Fort where the revered Tipu Sultan once held court, and the Omkareshwar temple are among the most famous attractions of the district’s headquarters in Madikeri. While you are here, also visit Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, the largest Tibetan settlement of south India. Go here for a pleasant evening intermittent with monastic hymns, prayer bells and a motley of Tibetan handicrafts.
