Submerged temple becomes a living monument at Krishna Raja Sagar

If devotees cannot go to the temple, the temple goes to devotees ! This is what happened at Krishna Raja Sagara. The 12th century Venugopala Swamy Temple, which remained submerged when the KRS was full and resurfaced when the water level reached an all time low, was shifted to the nearby Hosa Kannambadi village, thanks to liquor baron and philanthropist late Sri Hari Khoday who took up this gigantic task as a Khoday Foundation Project. Today, the temple, which is waiting for inauguration, has become a major tourist attraction.
