Hassan is one of the districts in Karnataka, situated about 185 km from Bangalore. It was an integral part of the Hoysala Empire, and that’s why the architecture is fabulous! The district houses many temple towns, and also lies on the banks of the Hemavati river. The ideal place for the history & cultural buffs. The must do’s when you are in Hassan is visit the Ramanathapura temple, Gorur dam, Hoysala temples and of course Shettihalli church. This church has a unique feature, it is submerged in water during monsoons and emerges back after the monsoons. Best time to visit is now!
