Shimoga, Karnataka, India
Keladi is a historical town and is famous for the Rameshwara Temple here. The town is in the Shimoga District and was once the capital of the Keladi Rulers. The Rameshwara Temple looks very simple from outside. It resembles the look of nothing just a typical Kannada Residence. As you go inside, you find out the difference. The temple is very old and very cool inside, most probably because of the usage of stone everywhere. The three main deities here are Lord Rameshwara with the bull, Lord Veerbhadra and Lord Ganesha. In a place, you will also find the statue of Queen Chenamma on a horse and again another once where the wueen is worshipping Lord Ganesha. In the back portion of the temple you will find something very interesting. It is a whole wall with a vastu diagram drawn on it.

Weekend Getaways from Keladi 

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.
