We visited all those places in just three days. We started our journey around 8:00pm towards Mangalore from Bangalore.

Unfortunately one of our bikes got punctured near a village within two hours of our journey.

So we stayed there while Don went to fetch a mechanic from the nearby village. He found a mechanic and came back in an hour. Then we reached Mangalore by mid-night and booked a hotel there. We took rest for the night, had our breakfast the next morning at the same hotel and started our journey again.

In Sringeri we visited many temples and buildings which were intricately designed.(Amazing architectures).

There was a river behind the temple of Sringeri. Lots of fishes were in that river waiting for the food to be thrown by the tourists. Each  fish weighted almost 5 to 6 kgs and was in different colors as well.

Few of my friends went to the temple and did some prayers. I went to a meditation hall and did a prayer for a while. Some musicians were playing wonderful songs.

The whole area was filled with Karnatic Music. Still I remember the two brothers who were playing the “Nathaswaram”. There was a pin drop silence in that temple. We took a few photos around the temple and bought some things in the shopping area for the remembrance of Sringeri.

Then we started our journey again……. 🙂
