A day in tumkur

On a day's picnic tour of Tumkur, we got to visit the Siddhaganga Math , Namada Chilume and Devarayanadurga. All these spots are in the close proximity to each other.

The Pinnacle of the temple at the Siddhaganga Math




Namada Chilume believed to be have been created by Lord Rama

Bastions at the entrance to the Devarayandurga fortress

A half finished job.Waiting to be sculpted at the precincts of a rebuilt 800 year old Shiva temple at Durgadahalli
