Guys,

I have a plan to visit the Krishna Temple at Doddamallur(or Thottamallur) near Mysore. A weekend trip soon in a month time from now....

Let me know the route which i should take to reach better and current road conditions.
PS: Any good place nearby to cover over a weekend.


Thanks,

Doddamallur temple is at Channapatna on the well known Mysore Road.
(No need to tell, how to get on to Mysore road)

The temple arch can be seen when you just go beyond Channapatna town on the left (1-2Km max). The temple opens by about 9-10AM (I think, but not early).

Better to come to BLR, take the NICE road and exit at Mysore road.
After you cross E-City, DO NOT take the elevated toll road. Keep to the left. Within a 2KM you would see, NICE road exit to the left.

The temple opens around 9 or so and is open till 12.30 PM. 5 AM IST might be bit tight for you to reach the temple before 12.30 unless you come non stop, no traffic etc. I would recommend starting at 4 AM if you can since there is no fog as well now.
