hello everyone, bit of info if anyone heading to see Saint Gomateshwar,
This is a nice little place to chill for a few days, the statue is pretty cool with pretty impressive views over the plains, i’ve seen snaps of the event and it looks great, a must if your in the area, about 4 hrs on the bus from mysore. You can also stay in the pilgrims guest complex, about 60 rup’s for your own little flat, cheap but make sure you got something to sleep with, its pretty basic, think i payed 5 rup’s for a matress but take sheets / lungi or something otherwise its the floor, which i ended up cleaning due to find that a dog had left me a nice present, when in got my room. they will try and make you go to the only local hotel which is a lot more money and just as basic, i also had to ask for permission to stay from the pilgrims office, if i remember right.
The other thing is when you visit the temple you have to leave your shoes and walk the steps, or you could get carried, but in hot sun and heat the steps get roasting, take a few pairs of socks!!!
Well if anyones off there have a great time, im very jealous, safe travels rich.
