About Melukote

Another Temple town with the same Vaishnavite religious significance as Srirangapatna, pilgrims head to Melkote for the Cheluvanarayana Swamy Temple. However, located on the Yadugiri Hills, the Temple is more than just a place to pay obeisance to the almighty. Commanding views of the smaller temples, shrines and lakes below, including the entire Mandya area, where it is located, from atop these granite hills makes it a place where one would want to go on clicking away. In particular is the view of the Kalyani Theertham, the temple pond, that sparkles emerald green in the light, like a large jewel on the landscape.
