KOTE MAHAGANAPATHI TEMPLE


Having left VirajaPete 8.00 am in the morning, we reached Madikeri in about 45 minutes and our first visit was to KoteGanapathi Temple in Madikeri Fort (Basthi).


WALKING AROUND KOTE (BASTHI)


MADIKERI VIEW



Madikeri Fort is situated in the heart of the city and some of the old buildings are used as district offices. At the north-east corner of the entrance, there are two life-sized masonry elephants.

Walking round on walls of the fort gives panoramic view of Madikeri. There is also a place in the corner, a place where the Britishers used to hang the people on death sentence.

We walked around the place for an hour and proceeded to our next visit.
