Hi
On this Sat I will try to cover ( Bangalore - Melukote - Sravanabelagola - mosale - belur - halebidu - Bangalore ) on my bike.

- I will be leaving by 4 in morning and hopefully will reach Melukote by 6-7 am.
- From Melukote to Sravanabelagola I am considering it will be 10 am.
- Mosale by 2
- and by 5 I will try to move back to bangalore.

Now what I have assumed is correct or not , that you people have to help me out with. I am even prepared to stay at Hassan if I am too tired.

Your suggestions on this now.

If you're actually trying to see any of the temples and /or Sravanabelagola climb then please do stay back in Hassan, else it would be worse than the one day bus KSRTC bus tour for this circuit. Hotel Krishna in Hassan used to be nice.

On the return, since you have a bike, it would be worth coming via Somanathpur (kanakapura road) and checking out the temple to complete the Hoysala circuit.

Thank you Vaibhav

I will reverse my path ( will start from Belur towards Somanthpura ) and will stay in Hassan.

Also I have created a map for my trip .

If I am missing anything "please" tell what I need to add or update on any points in here.

Hey All,

I completed my Hoysala circuit. I went to Koravangala - Hassan ( had some breakfast there ) - Laxmi Devi temple ( in some village starting with "Dodda" . It comes on highway between Hassan and Belur. ( Beautiful view along the highway)) - Belur ( Huge area covered by the temple ) - Halebeedu ( not so huge temple but as beautiful as Belur temple ) - Hassan ( got myself some room - took rest for awhile ) - Mosale ( from Mosale gate to temple - its a village road very rough ) - headed towards Shaklespur ( Majarabad fort ) . very nice scenery but also curves on road makes it dangerous to drive ( saw accident that is why telling ) . I reached at around 6 pm at fort but it was already closed ( 5:30 pm ) so you people if planning should plan out accordingly - ( almost night so could not visit Bisle ghat which I was really looking forward to ) - Hassan ( stayed night ) - Started at 6 am in morning to Sravanabelagola -reached at 7 ( Indeed hugeee monolith statue ) . One can see from very far ( mountain ) . Also, on the way you will find many ponds ( and if you are driving early morning like I was then it just makes it perfect0 ) - went to Melukote ( it was not as good as I was expecting to be ( so I would suggest drop this place from your list ) ) - Somnathpur ( not to much of restoration on this place so whatever you is like really old. Though this place was as good as Belur one I had enough of temples ) - Started way back to Bangalore. If anyone wants to see photos let me know I will upload them.


also i found that, Khajurao is not the only temple with erotic images, I even saw one at Mosale temple. I might also be wrong at this, but thats what image i took clearly displays.
- If anyone needs more detail , feel free to ask.

a) How is the current road condition via the old mysore - bangalore road (kanakapura)
b) did you take any photos of the smaller temples near the tank in Sravanabelagola? If so, please share....

1) Roads were all good. Apart from
Koravangala - State highway which connects Hassan ( It was horrible/ under consttruction )
Mosale to temple - As it was village so you cannot expect good roads
Bannur ( connecting village ( Melukote/Somnathpur )) to Malavalli - This road was BAD.
Kanakpura - Bangalore - Was good ( but was very busy road and if bus was ahead you ( bad ) )

All other roads were mostly clear and board so no issues in driving ( I always start early morning ) and because of that I do not face much traffic on roads.

2) I have photos of tank (bela gola ) but not of the temple which was situated on the other hill. I saw digambers there ( would'nt dare take photos of them )

Attached are the images of Sravanbelagola. On the top of the mountain you can see small head rising.
