Kalyani is huge and well maintained. People take holy dip and then take Darshana.
Sri Cheluva Narayana swamy temple sanctum Sanatorium is surrounded by covered stone platform supported by beautifully sculptured pillars. I could grab few pictures of the pillars and the entrance Gopura.
If I had more time I could have closely observed the sculptures on the pillars. There are many more such pillars.
YOGANARASIMHA TEMPLE :
I took some candid pictures of some priests walking around in the town.
Here are some…
I had good lunch at Melukote. You will invariably get to taste “Puliogare” (A special delicacy made of Rice). I came back to Guest house by 1630 hrs.
I have understood, learnt one thing on travel or visiting a place. One should be clear in his / her expectations out of the visit or travel.
Do pre search the place and see if it suits the expectation. In some religious or historical places, one may not get to see exotic and wondrous things but the place has some importance or significance that matters.
Some times you need to go back in time visualising the scene at the spot to feel the event, that had taken place several hundred or thousand years ago.
I feel that the visit to Melukote fulfilled my expectations quite well.
