Nice place, Temple, river and the surroundings are very clean. Can be considered for a days outing from Bangalore, preferably via Srirangapatna-Hunsur route AS THE ROADS ARE GOOD compared to the Arakalgudu - Chenarayaptna

The sacred river Cauvery starts as a spring in ThalaiKaveri in Coorg, Karnataka and travels in the mountains as a river..Touches ground at Sivasamudram water falls. Following the route that Cauvery takes itself is a pleasant journey and divine experience.
