Melukote

Friends, past three days we covered “Perumal Koil” (Kancheepuram Varadaraja Perumal Temple), “Koil” (Srirangam) and “Malai” (Tirumala, Tirupati). Today, we complete this series with Melukote, also known as Thirunarayanapuram.

Melukote is home to three major temples: Cheluvanarayana Swamy Temple, Nambinarayana Temple and Shri Yoga Narasimha Swamy Temple.

“Melukote in Pandavapura taluk of Mandya district, Karnataka, in southern India, is one of the sacred places in Karnataka. The place is also known as Thirunarayanapuram. It is built on rocky hills, known as Yadugiri, Yaadavagiri and Yadushailadeepa, overlooking the Cauvery valley. Melukote is about 51 km (32 miles) from Mysore and 133 km (83 mi) from Bangalore.”
