Historical tales along the Tungabhadra River


| May 15, 2020

Embark on a gentle hike to the mighty Tungabhadra river, passing through giant boulders, ruins of ancient temples and terrain once belonging to numerous civilizations and kingdoms. Spot the riverside boulders and hear about their connection to the great Indian epic, Ramayana. Witness the ruins of the magnificent Achutaraya temple and how it stood the test of time and multiple attacks by rival monarchs. The temple complex offers stunning views of the tranquil Tungabhadra river flowing softly through the rocky terrains. Observe the birdlife that thrives by the riverside and enjoy a beautiful sunset over the Virupaksha temple, which shines gloriously in the light of setting sun.
