Shringeri Sharadamba Temple

Shringeri Sharadamba Temple in Chikmagalur

The place whose soil has been blessed by the feet of the great Adi Shankaracharya. The temple is awesome and the surroundings serene. All visitors are served a midday meal in the temple premises.
To get there, it takes about 2 hours from Chikmagalur. Wear proper Indian clothes, and go with a healthy dose of respect towards age old ashram.
Like I said it's a large oyster, search for your own pearls.

"One of the many best temples. Visiting the deity on the banks of Tunga, amidst Western ghats, when the river flows slow and nice, saw the full moon rise from the mountains was an astonishing and life time experience. The rooms are very well maintained and especially the rest rooms. "
