Amazing temple... really old.. over 1200 years old, Has an english speaking priest. The murti of Lord Rama with Sita to his right is unique. This is in the avtaar of Kalyanam . Hanuman ji is missing since this is much before vanvaas

The temple is in Hiremagalur about 4 kms from Chikmagalur. Its 1000 years old and beautiful. We were fortunate to witness the tulasi pooja. The idols depicts Rama, Sita and Laxman walking. The priests are friendly and explain the history patiently. A divine experience.
