It was a Sunday sunny morning when our team left to this spot. We drove through kanakapura - Bangalore highway and took the diversion to Sangama highway. Initially roads were narrow , later passing through 3 - 4 kms, it was a pleasure to drive with cool breeze from green trees on both sides. Passing through villages , farmers cultivating silk - it was a nice experience .
First we visited the isolated Shivanankareshwara temple about 8 kms inside the forest area from this spot and then traversed back to this Spot.

Sangameshwara temple at the corner of river bank had idol of Shiva linga consecrated. However this seemed to attract less visitors. Temple was closed by the time we reached back . However we could get a glimpse of idol from temple door
There were 1 or 2 lodges and restaurant serving delicious food. Do not miss out the fresh river fish grill. One may even plan a night stay at this spot , enjoy the night chill with camp fires.

Overall an awesome weekend river adventure spot just at 2 hours journey from Bangalore. Do visit with your family , friends and share your experience.
