Nanjangud Temple

Nanjangud temple is about 23 Km from Mysore, takes about 45 mins to reach from Mysore.The temple is on the banks of river Kapila. Road is OK, very dusty. You come across 3 lakes while going from Mysore to Nanjangud. Seems like they are not maintained by anybody but even then their scenic beauty makes people passing by to stop and watch them.
