To get to Keshava temple from Bangalore I need to follow the Bangalore-Mandya, Mandya-Bannur, Bannur-Somnathpur route. Then I'm wondering since it's more of the same direction to Mysore, can I also go to Mysore afterward and take a night bus/train back?

We did it in one day. We took a train to Mandya from ERN at around 9. It arrived at 11:30 (it took longer due to the delay) Then from Mandya city we took a direct public bus to Somnathpur. We arrived at around 1:40. Then from the temple we took first a bus to Bannur then from there it was easy to jump on a bus to Mysore. We only did the palace in Mysore and then take a train at 6-ish and arrive at 9-ish in Bangalore. In Bangalore we still went to the night food street.

It was quite a day but easier than we tought. For the same we also did a day trip from Kochi to Kottayam, did a backwater public boat to Alleppey then took a bus bck to Kochi from Alleppey.


Yes you can actually I come from Mysore, and the temple is just 30+ km's away, and good express trains to Bangalore are available till 20:30

Let me know if you need anymore information.

  • Thanks! Are there any direct buses from Mysore to the temple? My concern is mostly from Bangalore to the temple, needs 2 changes of the bus Aug 29, 2016 at 13:00
  • Unfortunately i don't think so there are any at least to that temple, you can hire a car or you can drive one yourself ;) btw when are you planning to go there?

  • This saturday I guess. I don't think I would rent a car. Do you think I can use uber from the temple to mysore? Aug 29, 2016 at 14:01
  • That's way out of the coverage area of Uber. I'm around in town that day let me know if I could help?
