I went to Cheluvaranarayana Swamy Temple. Lord Vishnu is worshipped in different forms and Cheluvaranarayana Swamy is one of them. A small hill named Yadavagiri or Yadugiri in Melukote is known for housing ancient the Cheluvaranarayana Swamy Temple. It is great place to go.

Enjoy the carving of God in pillars. Very good architect. Crowd puller. Considering important Vaishnava temple, hygiene bneeds improvement.
