Road Trip to Bhoo Varahanatha Swamy Temple

Couple of weekends ago, I went on a road trip with my colleagues to the scenic Bhoo Varahanatha Swamy temple, about 160 kms from Bengaluru. This temple is near Krishnarajapet, Mandya district.

To avoid traffic conjunctions, we left Bengaluru at about 7 a.m. and in an hour; we were in Bidadi having our breakfast. The drive from here until Srirangapatna was awesome and the real road trip fun started from Srirangapatna until we arrived at our destination, the Bhuvarahaswamy Temple. 

It is a single road, very narrow and curvy. The plantations, industries and village homes were a delight to see. We stopped in couple of places, especially near the yellow flowering plants for photographs.

The Bhoo Varahanatha Swamy temple gives out a pleasant view of the plantations on one side and River Hemavathi on the other side. The visitors were enjoying the coracle ride.

Within an hour, we completed our rituals in the temple and took a stroll towards the Hemavathi River. After a while, we left to our next destination to Melkote.
