Bettada Byreshwara Temple
This ancient temple is said to be over 600 years old. It is atop a hill and overlooks the entire valley. Stand there and get mesmerized by the glorious views of the hills in the Western Ghats and the valley and wonder how someone thought of building a temple here. God Byreshwara seems to stand guard over the entire valley. There is a nice motorable road, though steep, leading to the temple. One can also climb up to the temple through steps that have been built.
The side ways of the temple is surrounded by Pandavar Gudda hills and front is the villages. From the top we feel that we are above the sky and we are floating on it.
