Mahadevapura: Mysore’s best kept secret


Overview: Mahadevapura is a silent little picnic spot near Mandya on the Banks of Cauvery and some exotic birds. We decided to go for biking to Mahadevapura and parked the vehicle near the river. There is a small Shiva temple and close to it is the river bank. There were people offering coracle rides to the other end to have a glimpse of the birds. The coracle ride was very good and though we were not lucky enough to spot birds, we stopped by near a small waterfall formation which looked out of this world. Stayed there for some time, and then we returned back to our bikes. A short trip, though its worth visiting during early mornings or evenings. Also it looks great during monsoons. Not to mention the drive to this place is through scenic countryside and lovely villages.

How to reach: By Car/Bike: Head towards Mysore road on SH12 and at 8 kms before Srirangapatna turn right at Baburayana Koppalu. From there watch out for an arch mentioning directions to Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary (Not to be confused with the original Ranganathittu. From there ask for directions to Mahadevapura.
Food/Accommodation: Its advisable to carry food from home as there are no proper restaurants on the way.
