    We visited the Temple on 25-12-08. People are being allowed inside.

    I heard that now they are not allowing people to enter the temple
    because of some reasons.
    I want to know whether it is true or it is just a rumour.
    Thanks in advance…

    I enjoyed seeing the photos. It brought back memories from many years ago when I had the opportunity to visit this wonderful place. Legend has it that once some thieves entered the temple at night and packed all the jewelry therein and when they tried to exit, a tiger and a bear appeared outside and kept the thieves inside. They were apprehended at daylight. Thanks for posting the photos and the narration.

    Thanks for the info.. was useful

    Indeed a good weekend bike ride!!

    If you have are planning to 3 day outing, you can even plan for Ooty. This is around 100km from the betta.

    We ended up going to Ooty and coonor. Very enjoyable bike ride!

    Remember to take Bandipur root to Ooty (Not the Madhumalai route, as the roads are really bad).

    Nice log with super photos.

    A small correction : Its called ‘Himavat’ Gopalaswamy since the diety at the temple will always be covered with ‘hima'(a temperature drop). Even if there is no mist around the temple, Sanctum Sanctorum will have it covered. Priest will catch a bit of it and sprinkles on all the devotees.

    Ahhh how beautiful!! You know, a snap very similar to the last but one snap, which I took on our visit to Gopal’s (as Mysoreans call it), adorned my desktop until very recently.
