Its located in the backwater of river Sharavathi.
After we cross Sharavathi river we get a village called Kalasavalli belonging to a place called Tumari.
Just 10KM from this place, we get Goddess Chaudamma ( Chowdamma ) temple.
Sri Sigandur Chaudamma temple
To cross the river Shravathi, we have to use the launch service( ferry ) and the service is available only till 5pm.
If you are coming here from other states or country, you will need to first come to the main city called Sagar which is 350Kms from Bangalore [Bengaluru].January 28, 2012 at 5:15 pm #1287

No ferry! Where to stay?
