Bhadravati

Bhadravati is a small town in the state of Karnataka just 20 kms from Shimoga. The place has got this name as the Bhadra River flows through the city. This city established itself as industrial town as various industries were setup here in the early days: iron mill in 1918 and a paper mill in 1936.



In the ancient times Hoysala Dynasty ruled this place and the sacred temples built in those days are still present in the city. One such ancient temple is Lakshmi Narasimha Temple. Other places of interest nearby is Shimoga which has several tourist attractions.



Another village near this city is Amratpura and here there is beautiful Amruteshwar Temple.
