Amruthapura, Karnataka (with photos)

Amruthapura is a village in Tarikere taluk of Chikmagalur district of the Indian state of Karnataka. The Amrutheshwara Temple at Amruthapura built by the Hoysalas during the 12th century is a very beautiful place which is near to the Bhadra reservoir. Its very near to the Tarikere town, but the road from Tarikere to Amruthapura is very bad.
