Wow ! Very nice snaps! In fact, Ranjit's question on Karnataka circuit which is something I had in mind for a long time, but some have never done.

Though visited most of the temples, Kalasa/Horanadu is something which I have not seen. Add to it the natural scenery of Sagar/Jog and nearby areas. The snaps are stunning.

Thanks ampere.
The right to visit Malenadu is just after the rains, stunning greenery allaround.

If you are going to Jog, on the way back, try and club it with a trip to Belligavi for a beautiful temple built by Chalukyas/Hoysalas. Also plan a trip to Bandalike which is around 15 KMs from Belligave. A spraaling complex of temples over 40 Acres which presumably gave the Cambodian rulers a vision to build Angkor Wat. Belligave has a guide - Paramswarappa - but did not find anyone in bandalike which is sad.

You can club this with a visit to Gudavi Bird santuary as well.

Suggested route

Jog - Siddapur - Sorab (Gudavi) - Shiralakoppa (Belligave and Bandalike) - Shikaripura - Shimoga

If you are making Tirthahalli/Shivamogga as a base you can do this as a day trip alongwith Jog.

Shimogga - Shiralakoppa road is excellent.

Thanks for the info! An amazing find for me.

Guys : Another question, for which I did not get an answer. How is the Jog to Kollur route?

Ampere,
This is a pretty good one.
Roads from Jog to Kollur are in decent shape.If you take the State Highway 50,its not in the best of shape(Even though,its not as bad as perceived).
The best route would be travel from Jog to Sagar and then hit the road to Kollur(the only glitch is that this is close to 40kms more than the route through SH50)
But the roads in this stretch are much better(travelling via Hosanagara)

Other option is to come to Sagar and then take a launch to Nittur and then onwards to Kollur. You will enjoy amazing backwaters of Linganamakki dam.
Check out some pics.

Spell binding photo of Belligave temple. The highly polished stone pillars which are extremely precise in measurements done over ages back with god knows what kind of hand held tools was my first inspiration to take up engineering!
I couldn't get this kind of a finish in metal turning class during engineering days using a lathe.
And a small rosewood lamp that I turned, measuring a little above 9" took me over 2 days to complete.
Imagine what kinds of efforts went in to those temple pillars. Long live temple architecture.

hallik9, No I was referring to the SH only and not going back to Sagar.
Since the distance is about 90Km it should be possible in 2 hours with OK roads.

Although I am no engineer, I am a big fan of Indian architecture too!! I couldn't agree more!!

@Fauji,
How is road condition between Sagara - Kalasavally(Backwaters )- Sigandhoor. Last time I went (almost 4 months back) half of the road was in beautiful condition and the other half was in bad shape.

When we took this route in August, you can see the clouds hovering over backwaters, the stretch closer to the launch on Sagara side was broken a bit but doable. If i was able to do it in Fiesta that time - i changed over to Scorpio now - you can be assured that it is not bad.

At present, i am confident it should definiteley better as i most of the roads in Shivamogga, Tirthahalli, Shikaripura, Shiralakoppa, Soraba areas are done up well when i went last week. Possibly they would have taken care of this stretch as well.

I think the fort you are talking about is in Nagara.

Hi Lohithrao,

Nagara fort is the same as Shivappa Nayaka's fort. It looks stunning immediately after rains and one can explore the ruins of the fort in two hours. Just take a look at the following pictures and my travelogue at this link
