Savanur

Savanur,  in Haveri District, Karnataka, albeit a small town has a rich history. Ruled by Nawabs and later bone of contention between the Maratha's and Tipu Sultan, The town ended up in the British suzerainty  All that remains today is this Fort wall and the Nawabs  residency, which houses the government offices.

Also famous for Savanur Khara or mixture as its popularly called, I spent an unbelievable 30 mins in a queue to buy 500 gms khara, its sure is delicious.



Savnur boast of three Baobabs trees with huge trunks and this could be the only location in whole of India. The biggest measure 18 m in girth and are purported to be 5000 years old.


hidden some where in the agricultural fields is this beautiful  Vishnu teertha
