Talakad is a small mystical town steeped in the glorious past and heritage nestled on the left banks of River Kaveri. The town has been a witness to the rise and falls of several great kingdoms including Cholas, Pallavas, Gangas, Vijayanagar and Hoysalas.
Folklores and legends are hidden in every nook and corner of the town, trying to unearth from beneath the layers of sands that covers the town. Peeking at every turn are some exquisitely carved temples that represent the finest epitome of unending saga of craftsmanship and footprints of the rich bygone era. Nicknamed as 'Kasi of the South', Talakad is adorned with five sacred Shivalingas giving this intriguing place a spiritual aura and a rustic charm. After several temples being excavated from the cursed sand dunes, there are many more waiting to be unearthed.
