Description about the temple
Sri.Trayambakeshwara temple at Trayambakapuri is a classical example of Vijayanagara style of Temple Architecture. As you enter the temple, you would find a Gopura, which is in semi-ruined state and as you enter it you can find the entrance similar to that of any entrance which was built during Vijayanagara times. As we proceed further, you come across a statue of Nandi housed inside a small mantapa.
As one proceeds into the temple, you can find the Navaranga the Shiva is in the form of Linga. As you take a pradakshina and come out of the temple, you will find a place which is belived to be the platform where once Wodeyars used to have Durbar. After passing thru the Durbar Hall, you will find Panchalinga behind the main shrine. At the North West corner, you will find the temple of Parvathi Devi.
The main thing which attracts the archaeologist is the presence of Shila Shasana over to the South East corner of the temple.

How to reach Terakanambi
From Bangalore 218 kms
From DHQ Chamarajanagara 32 kms(approx)
Triyambakapuri is about 18kms from Gundlupet. The road from Mysore to Gundlupet is a National Highway which connects Mysore and Calicut. You can also visit Nanjangud, Kalale and then proceed towards Gundlupet. From Gundlupet you need to take the road towards Chamarajanagar and enroute you will find Triyambakapuri. Just before reaching Terekanambi, you need to take a right deviation and follow a kuccha road, there are sign boards available and you can follow them.
The nearest rail head is at Chamarajanagara. But it would be strongly advisable to travel upto Mysore by train and then by road, as it is more faster.
Once Mysore Airport becomes operational, it would be the nearest airport, but at the moment, Bangalore International Airport is the nearest.
