Join us on the Hoysala trail

Arun and I have been planning for ages to get into the travel space. And we finally did over coffee one afternoon when we realized that we both had the same interest. Both of us were fascinated by the Hoysalas and the Malenadu region and after days of pouring over history books and a century old ASI documents we launched our first tour – The Lesser Known Hoysala temples. We also added a coffee trail and a birding trip to the heritage tour and lo, we became tour guides as well.

We had a trial run last month with friends who gave us a lot of motivation and now we are back again. This time, we would like to invite you to join us. The trip would cover temples off the tourist track, go to the ancient town of Dwarasamudra and its ruins, the temple called Velapuri also called Belur on the banks of the River Yagachi. We promise that it will not be a history class, but will present you with some colourful details of the lives of the kings and queens as well..:)

We look forward to having you with us.Do join us and you can mail me at [email protected] or arun at [email protected] for any information. The details are in the brochure.(Pls click on it to see it in full)

    Hi Lakshmi,

    This is really a great idea. Had I stayed in Bangalore, I would have joined you for sure. I wish I would join you in one of you forthcoming trips. All the best.

    Btw, when I started my travel blog recently, I came to know about your blog from one of your friends, who happens to be my friend too. The moment I browsed through your blog, I was impressed a lot. Very interesting….keep writing.

    Dear Lakshmi,
    I am a fan of your blog and would love to join you, but my age holds me back. However, I would like to know how you have done the Hoysala trail and would suggest your name for other younger friends. How about any trail on coastal side of Konkan? I will be interested if you arrange in Dec.since I am planning to visit kerala in Sep.Any tips?
