chibbalgadde

... a.k.a sibbalgadde, is a place near teerthalli in shimoga with no signboards to tell you've arrived... there's a very old ganesha temple built in stone. the temple courtyard has steps at the backside leading you down to the tunga river. here hundreds of fish jostle for the parched/puffed/plain rice offered by the devotees(or in our case, touristy visitors looking for fun).. rice is available at the lone house thats attached to the temple




the fishes are huge... easily 2-4 feet long... you could leave your hand in water long enough for them to brush against you and/or have them nibbling at your fingers and toes... you could spend an entire day just watching the fish here. 

shringeri is another place where you get to do the same.
