Taveling Tips for Tourists to Sringeri, Karnataka

1. Never enter any temple with your footwear. Leave them outside.

2. Always find out from a local whether there is any dress code before visiting a temple. For example, when visiting the temple premises of the residence of Swamiji at Narasimhavana, men may be expected to dress in the traditional simple dhotis and will have to remove their shirt before entering the inner sanctum where Swamiji resides. Shorts and strappy tops or backless garments should not be worn when visiting temples. In fact, avoid such clothes altogether when visiting Sringeri and restrict wearing casual clothes like shorts to the times you go trekking or visiting tourist spots around Sringeri. Women are expected to wear the traditional Indian salwar kameez or saree when visiting temples.

3. While most temples in India give the holy prasad free, lately some temples have been known to insist on taking hefty amounts for the prasad.

4. Certain trekking areas around Sringeri Karnataka need prior permission from the Forest Department. Click here for more information:

5. It is best to avoid traveling by road in a private vehicle directly from distant places due to the bad conditions of the roads, which worsen during the monsoon season of July to mid-September. It is more economical and easier to travel either on board a KSRTC bus or by train to the railway stations nearest to Sringeri, Karnataka.

6. When booking accommodations in Sringeri, Karnataka, find out in advance whether payment by credit cards is accepted. It is highly advisable to carry some Indian currency if you wish to put in money into the temple donation boxes (there is no compulsion to do this), to pay for food at local restaurants, to pay entry fees to local wildlife sanctuaries, to purchase bus tickets, etc.

7. If you are traveling by a KSRTC bus to Sringeri, Karnataka, find out in advance if there will be route stops on the way for use of public facilities, eating, etc. If there are no stops (say it is a short route), best to take the kids to the loo before boarding & also carry some snacks.

8. You must not litter the roads or temple premises and keep your room neat and clean at the lodge where you stay.

9. The presence of the Tunga River may tempt you to go swimming, but this is not advisable. Sudden strong currents and unexpected whirlpools have been know to trap even the best of swimmers. Fishing, too, is not allowed at any place along the river.

10. Above all, please respect the religious sentiments of the locals and do not poke fun at local rituals and attires.
