Description about the temple
Sri.Venugopala Temple at Agumbe is a typical Hoysala art and one can find the image adhering to Hoysala architecture. The inner sanctum is covered with additional external hall which is quite typical in Tulunadu style, because of excess rain(highest in Southern India), the architecture differs from other Hoysala temples. Looking at the temple one can easily make out that several Kings granted for its improvements.
The best time to visit the temple is during September-March as the weather is quite cold and during days its not that hot. During summer, Agumbe is quite hot and if you are lucky you could spot some Bisons enroute to it. Rainy seasons is not advisable, as its the wettest place.
Lots of waterfalls such as Vanakeabbe, Jogigundi, Barkana are awesome to visit and explore. Also the nearby hillock of Kundadri gives you amazing view of Chakra backwaters, Kodachadri and lush green paddy fields admist thick forest cover.
Recently many captively breed King Cobras were released into the jungles of Agumbe which happens to be their natural habitat. So just be careful!!
