Belagur a small hamlet centered between Arsikere and Hosadurga may not register the interest of even a local from Karnataka. It has neither tourist, commercial nor historical importance. An event in and around 1972 sealed the fate of this unknown town forever. A seventeen year old boy whose only asset was his poverty was destined by the benevolent hand of divinity to put his home town on the map of History forever. 
Sri Bindu Madhav Sharma, a member of a family of ancestral priests of a Hanuman Temple in this town attained the exalted state of self realization 30 years back. Since then, through the light of his self transformation he has transformed the face of this sleepy town into a true "Belakku-uru" synonymous with town of lights - Belagur.

The main deity of this place is Lord Hanuman called "Veera Prathapa Anjaneya". It was installed by Sage Vyasaraya about 750 years ago. In the span of thirty years Swamiji has developed this place into a spiritual oasis.
The Group
A group of 20 people started of Bangalore at 6 am,in an engeged bus towards Tumkur had breakfast at a hotel at 8 pm and proceeded further to Tiptur, Arasikere and then took diversion towards Belgur. The journey was not so pleasant and eventually reached at 11am to the temple at Belagur. After pooja and visiting Swamiji had prasada (oota)in a dining hall, sqautting on the floor.

Started the return journey at 2.30pm, visited Chidambara Ashram at Gubbi and reached back home at 8am.
