    As most of you know, we had a pet until last October,it used to difficult times for us during Divali as Mogi used to refuse food and not come out of house for nature calls!! we used to wake in the middle of night take him to out skirts of the city to complete his Nithya karma's!!

    I wanted to put an end this routine so we got into another routine,where in during Divali times we would go out to places where it is quite free of the crackers,Mogi passed away last year but still we decided to go out during Divali.
    This time for Home stay called Krushikoota http://krushikootahomestay.blogspot.in/

    Krushikoota home stay is about 13 Kms from Sringeri, Also though i like to drive in mountain roads, this time I took Bagangalore pune expressway and took a deviation to shimaoga via holalkere and after reaching shimogga there single lane road know as N.R pura koppa road which took us to Begar where the Krushikoota homestay is.al though this route is longer in terms of number of kilometers covered still hardly any ghat section to drive on so it was more relaxing.

    I like people who go to not so famous places :)

    btw is this place safe for couple if going alone? Can you share the approx cost of stay over there?

    I wanted to go far away from the sound of crackers yesterday :(
  5. Yes this place is safe , I had been with My family and a friend.they charge Rs 1350 for stay and 1 meal and break fast,additional Rs 150 extra if we want one more meal.there are quite a bit of site seeing places around and can also go to places like Sringeri or harihar pura temple for afternoon Prasad.
  6. This is 3000 years old Jain Temple, deity is Parshwanatha

    Kundadrigiri is even higher than Aagumbe

    Idol destruction by invading Islamic army,but the spirit of true Hindu is to get the temple reconstructed at the same site again and again best example is Somanath temple of Gujarat.each community did what they thought as right

    Although this is Jain temple there is Bramha,Khestrapala and yaksha in the Garuda Gamba or the pillar in front of the temple,no doubt Jainism was rebel child of Hinduism.
