The temple is at a distance of 25 km from Mysore. We reached here in evening. Luckily there was no Que. So we have darshan with ease. This is an ancient and well-known temple of Lord Shiva. Do visit when you are at Mysore.

This place is also known as Dakshin Kashi. This temple is very big and you also have a river flowing just opposite the temple.
