Overview: Yedathore, an old town in Mysore District, gave way to modern Krishnarajanagara, in the 1930s. The town was completely devastated in the floods by the Cauvery river and the whole town had to be shifted some 3 kms away. The new town named KR Nagara, was established between 1920s and 30s by the Maharaja of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar. The pillar, commemorating the formation of the new town, can be seen at the centre of KR Nagar town. Some of the old remains of Yedathore can still be seen, like the old railway station, still called so. The ruins of the old station can still be seen, and the platform is still recognizable, even though the tracks are not to be seen anywhere. The most prominent landmark of the old Yedathore is the Arkeshwara temple, having Chola features, and built in the 14th century by the Vijayanagara kings.
