Sagar City is the closest major city to Honnemardu. The place is very close to Jog Falls and has a lot of dining options, which Honnemardu does not. It is situated near Varadamoola that is the origin of the Varada River.
Also one of the major attractions of this place is the Sagar Marikamba Temple. Dedicated to Goddess Durga and its many forms, the small beautiful temple is a treat to the eyes, especially at night.
