Regular visitors here would know of the guided tour that Lakshmi and I have been planning. It is about visiting the less known, but charming places that were built by the thousand year old Hoysala Kings. Besides the guided visits, the participants will learn about the history and know about the origin, evolution and collapse of the Kingdom. After a very successful beta trip that received great response, we are now kicking off the tour. The next departure is on the weekend of July 4th. Details of the tour below. Please email me at arunchs a-t yahoo d-o-t com or call Arun/Lakshmi at 9880006460/9902070689 to register for the tour, or for any questions. Look forward to seeing you travel with us!
Tour – The Less Known Hoysala Kingdom
From Bangalore – July 4th 2009, 6.30am
Do you long for the feel of the rain brushing against you? Do you relish being out when it rains? And would you enjoy a dose of history to go with the freshness of the monsoon?
Then come and join us for the rainy-season edition of the tour of ‘Less Known Hoysala Kingdom’. We are heading to the fringes of Malnad. See the only Hoysala Temple that has not one but four shrines. Visit the beautiful tank with small shrines all around the water, surrounded by coconut trees in a quiet village. See the remains of the ancient town of Dwarasamudra strewn with carved rocks in a large open space.
Join us on the trip to see the heritage of Hoysalas beyond the tourist map. Learn about the history, evolution and end of the dynasty as you travel.
In addition, stay in the verdant surroundings of a coffee estate. Spend a pleasant morning in the countryside before continuing on another serving of history.
