Historic in its preface, magnificent in its sculptures and intriguing in its description, Talakad remains to be one of the most treasured towns in Karnataka. The town is known for its sand dunes, sand covered temples and the winding river Kaveri.
Setting a history to our state, Asia’s first ever hydro-electric power stations were set up in this vicinity of Karnataka. This island town has twin waterfalls called Gaganachukki and Barachukki. The falls are a feast to one’s senses.
