Day trip from Mysore to Shravanabelagoda and Melukote

March 14, 2019

Although this was our fifth visit to Mysore, there was still so much more to explore.  We took a gorgeous day trip to the Shravanabelagoda and Melukote, both a couple of hours from Mysore.

As is always the case when we stay with our good friends Stephen and Manjula at Mysore Bed and Breakfast, we made some lovely new friends – Dave and Ann from Cleethorpes in UK – and the four of us decided to take a day trip which would include Shravanabelagoda – home to a famous Jain temple and a giant statue of the revered figure Gomateshwara – and the temple town of Melukote.  It was too far to go by rickshaw, so we travelled luxuriously by car, driven by the ever-enthusiastic,  flourescent orange bearded Anjam.
