Kurudumale & Aavni

June 13th : It had been quite a while since the last trip and I had a new stereo system fitted and with all new songs in my pen drive we headed towards NH4. Yeah it was the first time we did not hit the Mysore road or Tumkur road. It was my first time I had to go though the city and reach NH4. So to avoid traffic we started from home by 7 and by 8 we were on Hebbal flyover taking right to head towards kolar. The roads after you cross bangalore were excellent but there were constant 2 wheelers moving in opposite direction and on the right most side of the road. I had to brake quite a few times to slow down and break the speed limit to 140. Heading straight we skipped kolar city and headed towards Mulbagal. On reaching mulbagal we took a left turn to reach Kurudumale. It was a nice slow 10km driving through tomato & mango fields. Kurudumale is famous for the Lord Ganesha temple built by Vijayanagar rulers. The Ganesha is 13 feet tall and is a beautiful idol, sadly though we were not allowed to take any snaps. After few cliques we headed towards Aavni. Avani has a wonderful complex of of Ramalingeshwara temples all within one courtyard dedicated to Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrugna. On the hill Agni Tirtha, a pond, and the Ekantha Ramaswamy Temple are also seen. Since navya had not climbed the hill the last time, she was more than excited to reach the top in spite of the sun beating down . We took few stops and a Monkey to drive us to top. The monkey followed us till the top and was behind us till we gave up and threw a packet of cake to it. Persistence pays guys even monkeys know..  Took a small break on top and started our decent down, had our lunch in coffee day as were too tired and hungry to go 10km to Uddis and by 5 we were back home.
