Then we did a pradekshina of the temple appreciating the hardship put on to get with these many (1000) pillars for this beautiful temple.Some browsing had told me that no two pillars looked alike. Wowie...Photography is prohibited though paying 100 rupees will get you the permission or sneaking in without knowledge and clicking through. Now don’t ask what we opted for...
Now we were ready to face the Gomateshwara in Karkala which was a mere 16kms away. No much traffic for company it was a decent route as well.. Surprisingly did not encounter much of cattle and human traffic either and got into trouble when we lost our way..then knocked a strangers home and asked for helped. The residents are kind.
Thanks to the scorching sun. Do carry your bottle of water, umbrella or else you may not be able to appreciate anything.
On our way back we came a tea garden at Samse just for a Moonar we stopped by clicked away enjoying the tea collectors click clak collection of the bud. After some tea and loafing about when we calling it a day it started drizzling around 5:00 and the journey got more exciting watching the rain and mother blossoming in her serene charm all were wonderstruct totally in silence.Few of the rain drops still clung in on to the windshield just like the wonderful memories clung on to our heart beautifully. Rocking music made the journey back equally memorable. By 7:00pm we were home excitedly talking about the journey and trip and browsing through the pictures.
