Davangere Tourism & Travel Guide

Located in the heart of Karnataka, Davangere owes its nickname ‘Manchester of Karnataka’ to the unending cotton mills encompassing the city. The fact that it is a temple town will be brought to your notice as soon as you enter the city for its sense of calm and peace. Sri Ram Mandir and Navagraha Temple, Durgambika Temple, Lingeshwara Temple and Subramanya Temple are just a few of the shrines that dot Davanagere. On the banks of Tungabhadra lies the Harihareshwar Temple, undoubtedly rich in scenic beauty. The ornate ceiling, door jambs of the mantapas and the legends associated add to the elegance. Beyond temples, Davangere features the Shanthi Sagara, a 12th century water reservoir, which is still in use and is regarded as Asia's second largest irrigation tank. The picnic spot is further adorned by the presence of Siddheshwar temple, which looks down at the lake from a small hillock. The Kundavada and Kondaji lakes are scenic water bodies around the town ideal for leisure treks and camps. And don't worry if all the trekking works up an appetite because the various varieties of dosa, especially the benne dosa, will satiate your senses. At the end of the day, relax on the comfortable beds of Hotel Pooja International or Srigandha Residency, the best in the town.
