Yoga Narasimha Temple / யோக நரசிம்ஹ ஸ்வாமி கோயில்

Atop the Melkote Hill stands the shining Yoga Narasimha Temple. Krishnaraja Wodeyar III presented a gold crown to this temple. It is built atop the 2952 ft rocky hills known as Yadavagiri or Yadugiri overlooking the Cauvery valley. It is about 51 km from Mysore.

 

The impressive part of this temple is that the Pushkaranai (Temple Tank) can be seen from atop this temple, while from the same place this hill looks beautiful. A great boon for a photographer.
