Cloaked in unusual lore, this temple atop a hill is said to be the one temple Tipu Sultan couldn't destroy, as he and his people were attacked by bees when they arrived to do so. A small piece of his armour still rests at the temple. The temple itself is open to the elements and the deity is surrounded by a wall made out of offerings that consist of clay figures from devotees. Make sure you visit early since no one, not even the priest, is allowed to stay post 1 pm. The view here is magnificent and the wild berries from the shrubs outside the temple are much favoured by the locals. In accordance with its unusual history, do be careful, as you'll have to take off your footwear 3 kilometres before the temple. Your vehicle can go straight to the top via a steep and winding road, but your shoes have to stay behind.
