- Talkad

Talkad 45 kms from Mysore is a strange phenomenon-an ancient town buried under centuries of sand. Only the Dravidian style Vaidyeshwara temple is visible above the ground. Once in 12 years, during the Panchalinga Darshana, the sleeping town awakes to festivities and fairs. Government buses, private buses and taxis are available to reach this beautiful place.

The ancient capital of the Ganga and Cholakings, 30 km south-east of Somnathpur, on the way to Sivasamudram. The legend surrounded Talkad located on the left bank of the Cauvery, houses 6 temples built in the Dravidian style. The Vaidyeswar Shiva temple built of granite in 1360 contains Siva in various postures. In front of the temple stand the gate keepers, the brothers Tala and Kadu, who were said to have been granted the boon of immortal­ity by the deity. The city has been named after the brothers twin who are credited with having cleared the forest and unearthed the image.

Another spectacular sight is the phallic Lingeswar which keeps on changing its colour. It appears deep red in the morn­ing, pale yellow in the evening and white at night. There are several other temples buried under the sand which are dug out every 12 years in the month of Kartik (Oct-Nov) during the Panchalinga Darshana festivities. Sivasamudram: Sivasamudram on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border is renowned for its beautiful forests, hills and waterfalls. In addition, there are 2 temples; one of Siva and the other of Vishnu lying in an

eternal sleep, that is, in the incarnation of Ranga-nathan. It is 37 km from Somnathpur and 77 km from Mysore. You can go there by bus and return the same way. The two waterfalls here are formed due to the Cauvery dividing itself into two and flowing down through mountain passes in the form of its tributaries Gaganchukki and Barachukki. The tributar­ies descend down to an altitude of 91 m to form the island of Sivasamudram. Even if you don't come face to face with wild animals in this isle, you will at least be greeted with a roar. Provided you have a permit you can visit the Shimsa Hydel Project, which is the first of its kind in India (1902).
