Nothing big to say about this great temple. Well maintained with many facilities compare with a decade back. Just come and have a darshan and get the blessings of Guru Ragavendra .

Hi, this is Chandramouli here... I am planning to travel to Mantralayam next week (04 and 05 of March) with my family... I have few questions: 1. Do Tungabhadra river have enough water and can we take bath? 2. Are there good hotels available and do any agents block our way to make us to pull into their hotels? 3. I will be driving from Hyderabad. Please suggest which is the best route from Hyderabad in terms of route, break areas (good hotels on the way) - we are pure vegetarians, etc... 4. I last visited this place around 2007. I did not know any particular procedure for dharshan... Last time, I just went into the temple, did pradhakshinams and namaskarams and came back. Thank you in advance for the information. Regards, Chandramouli.
