Another not so touristy place is the Shettihally church. This is on the other side of town. After taking a settle from the main highway, the drive of 15 km through the interior is itself worth it. The church is half submerged in water due to dam construction giving a panorama view of the river. This is a perfect sunset spot to end the day.
View from the bridge. See the church on the left side.
Sakleshpur is 60 kms from Hassan and has few unique attractions. One among them is the manjarabad fort. The fort is in ruins and covered with algae, which is part of the charm. A decent view of the ghats from the top.
