I am writing this post from small and quiet town of Sringeri - a place made important by Shankaracharya. Though I was loathe to come here initially, am now enjoying being here.
The town is in an idyllic location, surrounded by thick forest all around it. The drive to the place took me through winding and hilly roads with occasional view of beautiful hills of Sahyadri. Early in the morning, our car broke through foggy road, via evergreen forest, coffee estates, areca farms and paddy fields, taking us through perhaps one of the very scenic areas of Karnataka. Sun broke through the fog many hours after sunrise, his rays streaking through parallel pillars of areca and silver oak that grow straight and spread wings only at their tips.
The town itseld doesn't have the urgency that any town usually tends to possess. It's spread amidst verdant undulating landscape, with green unpolluted Tunga River flowing next to the ancient Shaneeswara temple and Sharadappetha on one side, and Shankara Mutt on the other side.
The river, undoubtedly was my first love. The next position goes to ancient Shaneeshwara Temple with its beautifully tapering gopura outside and finely carved pillars inside. I have much more to explore here, and if not explore, simply be in the middle of nature doing nothing more than feeding the plentiful fish in the river and dipping my feet into its flow.
But here, being on a low-bandwidth wireless dial up also means I am right now unable to research on the festivals for November and inform my readers in advance. But I shall do that the first thing I am back, in next few days. In the meanwhile, don't forget, if you are in the south, to visit Hampi Utsava from 3rd to 5th November.
