At the heart of western Karnataka lies a secret.
Nestled in the Western Ghats, Sakleshpur derives its name from an ancient shivling found in the area. It also means ‘place of great wealth and beauty ‘ and it certainly lives up to its name.
Traditionally famous for its trekking opportunities, Sakleshpur offers much more to its visitors. Amidst all the beautiful estates that make Sakleshpur account for a third of India’s cardamom production, the Sakleshpur Temple dating to the Hoysalas from the 11th Century is an experience that cannot be missed.
