Trip to Somnathpur

One Friday I was thinking where can we go and suddenly thought why don't we go to Keshava Temple, Somnathpur. Last time we went to Somnathpur with our friend Somnath, it was late at 5:00 pm. So it was about to be closed and it was raining too. So couldn't see the temple well. We made breakfast and lunch for next day and went to sleep early.

Its 23-Mar-2015, we got up at 3:00 am and after getting ready we started from home at 4:30 am. This time we went through Kanakpura road. Road was good and just before reaching the temple, we had our breakfast in the car and then we reached the place early morning at 7:30 am. Found that the temple opens at 8:30 am. So Runai suggested to go to Talakadu

which is near to that place. We first went to Shri Mahalakshmigunja Narasimha Swamy Temple along the bank for Kaveri River.

We went to rest room too there and then we started to head toward Talakadu. We were going as per the navigation map, but at-last we couldn't find the place. We asked local people and they showed the same direction but it was too late for us to realize and we headed toward temple again. By the time we reached it was 9:30 am and there were very few people inside the temple.

We started taking photos and watching magnificent temple, one person comes to us and tells us whether we want a guide. We were ok and he started explaining about the temple and its significance plus other details and crafts. After spending 1/2 an hour with him, we paid him and we were taking phits and watching the places in more details. After we were satisfied we came out of the temple at 11:30 am and on our back had lunch in approximately same place where we had breakfast and then we started to head back. Reached our home at 3:30 pm.
